CAT3: Art of the Protest

On Friday, June 2, 2017, members of the Tell Us How UC It project team presented to a CAT3 Sixth College writing program course titled: Art of the Protest: Cultural Production, Protest, & Technologies of Change.

As described in its syllabus, "This writing and communication course will focus on the rhetoric, technology, and art of American protest, with special attention understanding the role of technology (from the printing press to twitter) in civil disobedience. This course insists on the importance of historical memory, asking how the history of American protests aids in and informs the formation of contemporary movements, demanding that we all think about how we engage, remember, and honor the past while speculating on how we create our collective future."

The title of the presentation was "Saving the Revolution: Living Archives and the Future of Civil Rights." 

These images were responses to the question:

1. What role do you see for yourself?

2. What types of activities would you do in that role?
