Trick question: they work together to take down even stronger foes. In this session, you’ll explore writing at the intersection of art and resistance. UMMA Curator Dave Choberka will be joined by Professor Scott Beal of the Lloyd Scholars for Writing and the Arts program to consider a range of art genres and objects and their relationship to resistance movements across the globe.

The Arts & Resistance Theme Semester, organized by UMMA and the U-M Arts Initiative, is generously supported by the U-M Office of the Provost, the U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch, and Erica Gervais Pappendick and Ted Pappendick.
