Power to the People:
Street Art & Literature in London

This interdisciplinary course will introduce students to the diversity of contemporary British culture, focusing primarily on the art and literature produced in the multicultural metropolis, London. By visiting a range of sites, including multiethnic neighborhoods, museums, public squares, and community centers, students will understand the complex interactions of gender, sexuality, race, and class within contemporary London. “Power to the People” will allow students to explore the multiple ways in which communities across London have created their own art in their own spaces and written back to the dominant logic of Empire and Colony. This course will provide a strong grounding in postcolonial and migrant theories of art and culture, while also offering a cross-disciplinary perspective on the intersections between social change, popular resistance, and creative work.
