Culture Connect Featured Event
Conceived by choreographers and visiting faculty members Liz Lerman (founder of Liz Lerman Dance Exchange) and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar (founder of Urban Bush Women) in collaboration with students in their course DANC374 "Blood, Muscle, Bone:
The Anatomy of Wealth and Poverty," this performative "teach-in" (a lively and provocative tool of past protest movements) will explore issues surrounding wealth disparity and its impact on the body.
The event will culminate in a multidisciplinary performance of the research.
The teach-in will also feature Wesleyan Professor of African American Studies and English Lois Brown; Wilbur Fisk Osborne Professor of Psychology and Professor of Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Jill Morawski; and Associate Professor of Economics Wendy Rayack; and William Arsenio, Professor of Clinical Psychology at Yeshiva University.
