In this course, students will delve into the emergence and proliferation of far-right populism across Europe.

Moreover, students will actively engage in research through the Diplomacy Lab, an initiative hosted by the Mershon Center at Ohio State University.

ARTEDUC 5795: Seminar on Topical Issues in Art Education (U & G)

Global Indigenous Arts: Education for Settlers. 3 credits.

Indigenous visual artists, filmmakers, poets, and musicians, from the Sámi of Scandinavia to the Alutiiq of Alaska, the Mapuche of Abya Yala to the Bunun of Taiwan, from the Anishinaabe of Turtle Island to the Xhosa of South Africa, are creating some of the most compelling and challenging works of art today. Supported by a growing network of Indigenous curators, scholars and educators, Indigenous artists both celebrate and maintain their cultural specificity within a global framework of shared Indigeneity. Yet this flourishing of Indigenous arts takes place within the deeply conflicted historical and political contexts of colonialism, including structures of settler colonialism, that actively erases Indigenous peoples, extracting value from their land and cultural traditions. How, then, can an appreciation for the transformative work of contemporary Indigenous artists be reconciled with the traditional settler position of exploitation and appropriation? 

This seminar directly grapples with the problematic position of the settler by combining decolonial arts education theory, international solidarity movements, and the practice of participatory curriculum development. We will not only challenge and unlearn entrenched models of arts education, grounded in settler colonial histories and legacies at work in the institutions of the university and the museum, but also co-create a new form of solidarity-focused arts education curriculum in dialogue with the generative, constellatory syllabi of Indigenous artist-projects, exhibitions, and educational frameworks. Together we will begin to create a new curriculum focused on solidarity and accomplice building in the arts, forging an anti-colonial approach to settler education. We will learn tools for standing with, giving back, through non-extractive methodologies based in ethical practices and relation building for opening doors, while also stepping back.
