Acting Up In and Out of Class: An Example of Student Social Justice Activism in a General Education Class

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

“Monster Beauty”, a work created in Langlois’s general education visual arts class by student, Amy Chamberlain, uses visual language to critique the narrow range of beauty standards promoted by the industry. This case study describes the course and gender related activities and assignments, and through examining the art work and analysis of one of her students, illustrates the power of this approach to engage students with social issues and move them to action. Chamberlain’s full artist’s statement demonstrated mastery of several concepts introduced in the course, such as market segmentation, how perceptions of an intrinsic defect build anxiety and lead to sales, “the make-over plot,” and how advertisements rely increasingly on digital technology to create an unattainable ideal. Her goal was to raise awareness of the profit motive that underpins the beauty industry and its de-facto exclusion of all real—as opposed to digitally constructed—women.
