032. Program and Site Resources Committees: Public Art and Activism in U.S. Cities

Hyatt Regency Chicago Comiskey, Concourse Level West Tower

This roundtable examines the role of public art in U.S. cities, particularly in neighborhoods where people of color have lived, worked, and engaged in community activism, in part, through creating and supporting public arts. Grappling with a range of artistic forms—including murals, posters, sculptures, stained glass windows, performance art, musical performance, and art programming—the roundtable examines the myriad ways local activists have elucidated larger struggles for racial and social justice through what panelist Wilson Valentín-Escobar terms "artivism." With scholars and organizers studying San Francisco's Mission District; Chicago's Bronzeville, Argyle, and Pilsen neighborhoods; and New York City's Lower East Side, the panelists cover a range of cities in the United States, while considering shared questions: How does public art respond to community conditions of oppression (racist exclusion, gentrification, organized abandonment)? How does it create new forms of community among people seemingly differentiated by religion, class, ethnicity, sexuality, and gender? How do works of public art form archives for research and resources for teaching and pedagogy? How can art exhibitions generate art-based community making?

This roundtable builds on this year's theme of "Pedagogies of Dissent" in several ways. It investigates how activists have used art in public spaces not only to dissent against various forms of oppression (like racist exclusions from public space, imperialism in Latin America, forced migrations from Southeast Asia, or the willful abandonment of AIDS patients) but also to create oppositional pedagogies that articulated new forms of Latinidad, Black liberation theology, and aspirations for decolonial emancipation. Furthermore, this roundtable aligns with walking tours organized by the ASA Site Committee—one that explores the public art and murals in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, which continues to be a center of Mexican American life and community in the city; and another that explores the food, art, and design of the Argyle neighborhood that hosts a diverse range of immigrant and refugee communities. The roundtable will thus also consider how to bring the classroom to the living archives of public art and public history that reside in or near the places we teach.

058. Program Committee: Technologies of Dissent: A Workshop on Organized Resistance in the Digital Age

Hyatt Regency Chicago Comiskey, Concourse Level West Tower

From social media mobilization to digital direct-action campaigns, network technology has generated a dazzling array of possibilities and problems for activists working on myriad issues across the globe. This workshop draws together a diverse group of activists, academics, and artists to provide both an analysis of the shifting terrain of activism in the digital age and practical information and training in new technologies and techniques of dissent. In particular, panelists will consider: how to use social media to map dissent and build local assemblages of resistance; how to ensure that multiple voices are embraced online, including those of youth activists; how to utilize performance and theater-style frames in digitally-networked activism; how to use world-building strategies to fashion immersive social justice experiences and environments offline; and how to prepare for becoming 'digitally public' in light of high-profile cases of virulent cyber harassment of (mostly female) online activists. In addition to a chance to learn new skills, the workshop will provide a forum to share ideas and interact with workshop leaders and other participants around technology-based activism that bridges not only online and offline spaces, but also the gap between the classroom and the public sphere beyond it.

084. Program Committee Teach-in: Sexual Assault on College Campuses

Hyatt Regency Chicago Comiskey, Concourse Level West Tower

Recognized as pervasive on college and university campuses, a culture of sexual assault has often met a culture of hesitation (or ineptitude) on the part of university administrations, who are nevertheless accountable to Title IX's provisions prohibiting sex discrimination. At the same time, we confront a potential shift: the 2016 Republican Party platform called for removing the responsibility of colleges to investigate allegations of sex assaults, stating that reports of sexual assault should be "investigated by civil authorities and prosecuted in a courtroom, not a faculty lounge." Trump has called for the end of the Department of Education and the Office for Civil Rights, which oversees Title IX's adjudication of sexual assault in colleges and universities. How do we counter the culture of sexual assault on college campuses without tightening the grip of criminalization and incarceration? In this teach-in, we will learn and share strategies for confronting sexual assault on campus in this challenging political context.
