SOCI 3217: Law and Society

Prof. Debbie Becher, Spring 2023

Material Advocacy workshop - Feb. 8

Material Advocacy workshop in the Design Center
"How do we visually represent reproductive justice advocacy in social space? What is the importance of physical ephemera in protest movements today and in the past? After viewing relevant ephemera in the Barnard Archives, we'll learn how to ideate and materialize designs centered on reproductive justice with the Design Center and Athena Center. We will be creating original collaborative designs and translating them to historically relevant material forms including t-shirts, buttons, posters, and tote bags. Through this hands-on process, you’ll come away with material objects in support of the reproductive justice movement and learn new tools and making processes including screen printing, dye sublimation, and button making."

February 8, 2023 | 1:00pm - 4:00pm, Milstein 104
