Description: This Livable Futures course fosters creative and scholarly responses to planetary conditions of crisis and uncertainty. Livability is a term that encompasses social justice and ecological ethics by inviting critical re-thinking of who survives and who gets to thrive in our communities and extends that consideration to non-human and artificial life.  We will attend performances, screenings, and public dialogs together regularly and develop individual and collective synthesis of these experiences (essays, visual journals, audio/visual archives). Students will be supported in creating individual or collaborative final projects responding to the artists and themes of the course for publication in digital compendiums on the Livable Futures Idea Archive or the Wexner’s Read/Watch/Listen series. Students will gain experience researching, interpreting, writing, and speaking about the arts in relation to the urgent social conditions of our time. Special emphasis will be placed on Black and indigenous perspectives and practices as guided by our featured artists: Ontroerend Goed, Brother(hood) Dance!, Lemi Ponifasio | Elisa Avendaño Curaqueo | Natalia García-Huidobro, Awilda Rodriguez Lora, Andre M.
