Wikipedia is a great resource for getting general info about something, but because anyone can contribute or change its content it is considered unreliable. College faculty typically do not consider Wikipedia a credible information source.
Instead, use the library's print or electronic encyclopedias, dictionaries, or other reference books to backup the basic information of your research paper. These resources have gone through an editorial process to check for accuracy. To the right and below are some resources that may be of use.
Artists’ work often addresses societal issues and challenges to achieving equity and inclusion; it can even affect cultural political shifts. Advocates’ work frequently crosses over the line from advocacy into artistic expression. Where do these boundaries between art and advocacy lie? Are they solid or permeable? What sort of challenges do artist-advocates assume when they engage across this boundary? The course will highlight leaders in the arts world and advocacy world such as blogger Amanda Baggs, visual artist Paul Rucker, photographer Samantha Spirit, writer Rania El Mugammar, and opera singer Jessye Norman. As a class we will select a shared social concern and craft our own creative response. All backgrounds and forms of art expression are welcome.
