Beloiters: think outside the box with “Boxes and Walls”

April 11, 2014 at 7:46 am


Billed as an interactive "museum" designed to challenge all participants, organizers say tomorrow’s Boxes and Walls event will challenge Beloiters to think outside the box and break down the walls of discrimination, oppression, racism, sexism, and privilege.

When: Saturday (April 12)
Time:
1:45 p.m.
Location:
Richardson Auditorium, Morse-Ingersoll Hall

Boxes and Walls Rooms:

No More Deaths - Peace and Justice Club - To reveal to the audience the purpose and reasoning behind the organization “No More deaths”, its importance, and the privilege we are all inherently born with due to our nationality.

Confronting the Iconoclastic Paradigm-  A Performative 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.

Shopping while...  -  Black Student United (BSU) - Have you ever been singled out at a shopping store because of the way you look? Have you been followed, interrupted, or bothered by clerks?  What is it like to be a shopper and be treated differently than those around you?

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.

Counting Spoons: Understanding Invisible Disabilities -  Reid Caplan - To help students re-evaluate their perspectives on disability (as more than just a visible impairment), and stress the importance of being understanding to disabled people.
