This class is for anyone – whether or not you have one, none or several marginalized identities. For the privileged, we will push into how deconstructing identity helps develop an accomplice attitude. For those with marginalizations, we will explore how self love can combat internalized bias. For those with both (most everyone) we will do some of both. This class draws from decolonizing methodologies and poets with multiple identities. We will explore how identity of different types can be used to create writing that is both thought-provoking and meaningful.
