AEM 235 Ethics and Social Engagement in Arts & Entertainment




This course calls upon students to recognize and challenge their social perceptions to address the inequalities that exist in both the arts and entertainment workforce and audience as a means to fully realize the positive contribution that arts, culture, and entertainment can make in society. Through case studies, readings, discussions, and guests, students will explore ethical questions in the creative and cultural industries. By engaging with Indigenous ways of knowing and being and examining the intersections between race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, and other identity categories, students will gain an understanding of cultural contexts and critical tools needed to work towards a more equitable arts and culture field.
