CAT3: Art of the Protest


Art of the Protest: Cultural Production, Protest, & Technologies of Change was a writing Sixth College writing program course in spring 2017.

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.

These images were responses gathered at the end of a presentation about the Tell Us How UC It archive titled "Saving the Revolution: Living Archives and the Future of Civil Rights."

The question:
In thinking about the 4 major roles in social change, what role do you see for yourself? What types of activities would you do in that role?
