What is a “Manifesta?”
Put simply, this is your opportunity to perform a series of tasks to close out our course this Fall. Prompts to build your final project, your Manifesta are below:
1 – Discuss in detail what you have understood as possible theoretical and philosophical approaches to art, popular culture, and politics from Intersectionality perspectives.
2 – Reflect on your own journey who seeks to be an active participant in Intersectionality not just a scholar, but as a human being from whatever privileged and/or oppressed position within our various cultures and communities. Or not—and if not, what would you do to “shake things up” or change what you believe to be limits in this approach? Does Intersectionality still have the potential to transform this world from that of an oppressive state to one that practices social justice?
3 – What, if any, commitment do you believe yourself to be obligated to pursue as an adherent and a participant in Intersectionality, and what vision would you like to see manifested as a part of this larger collective of women and men both as a scholar and as an activist?
4 – Build your reflective essay with some of what you believe to be most cherished quotes from your readings–but do avoid over-quoting. Remember—you are writing in first person, and you are building your own path towards articulating a new possibility of Intersectionality.
