"Boxes and Walls" is an interactive "museum" designed to challenge all participants, including presenters and audience, to "think outside the boxes" and break down the walls of discrimination, oppression, racism, sexism, and privilege.

 Boxes and Walls Rooms

Confronting the Iconoclastic Paradigm:  A Per-formative Sociology of the Anthropology of the History of the Science of the Art of Interreligious Discourse in Multicultural Pedagogy 

 

Interfaith and Spiritual Life Program

“Students” (the cast) will contribute problematic statements to a class discussion about religion.   We hope to create a scenario in which attendees’ perception of religion on campus is challenged, specifically the ways in which a classroom experience can become an (overtly or subtly) hostile environment for religious students.

Gender Spectrum - Women's Center 

The goal of the “Gender Spectrum” activity is to encourage participants to think about how they experience gender roles and stereotypes in their lives and the lives of others.  Participants are invited to place themselves on a “gender spectrum,” where two opposing walls represent “male” and “female” and the other opposing walls represent “feminine” and “masculine.”

 

Counting Spoons: Understanding Invisible Disabilities - Learning Enrichment Center - Reid Caplan

To help students re-evaluate their perspectives on disability (as more than just a visible impairment), and stress the importance of being under-standing to disabled people. This short interactive experience aims to show that as important as it is for disabled people to keep track of their individual well-being, it is just as important for those involved with disabled people to be supportive and understanding of their circumstances. Having that support can make all the difference.
