Students enrolled in SOCI/MCST 449 contribute to the living history of a community arts organization through research projects that center on cataloguing works and writing artist profiles for the CVF digital archive, founded in the fall of 2018. The collaborative nature of the seminar forms a lens through which students engage with core paradigms in arts sociology that speak to the complex historical relationship between art and social inequality, and the potential role of the arts as a medium for social justice. <br></p>abowler djkim
