Are you studying abroad, traveling this summer, or interning in a new place? Join us for an evening with head of education Emily Potter-Ndiaye to learn how to use art as a tool for understanding and connecting with new cultures and unfamiliar places. Join us on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 from 7–8 p.m. in the Mead Art Museum.
Who deserves to be loved?
How do the politics of desirability drive us in our daily lives to present ourselves differently in order to feel worthy of accepting love?
How are perceptions of attractiveness and physical desirability are used to validate and celebrate certain identities while denigrating others?
Join us as we discuss the strong effect of social ideals for attractiveness on our actions while examining some of the wildest episodes of Catfish!
