US 254 Coming Out


This University Seminar uses the intellectual practice of visual literacy to explore the idea of coming out—what it has meant historically and what it means in society today as it is applied to undocumented immigrants, LGBTQ+ people, those dealing with mental illness or drug addiction, survivors of sexual assault, and other stigmatized identities or experiences. Through the use of texts, pictures, videos, and personal and professional artwork, students explore the idea of coming out from many directions in multiple individual, social, and political contexts.
