Course Description

Registration for spring is now closed. If you have questions about registration, please email

#RealNiggaOurs is a online/irl course in which participants will practice critical analysis of contemporary culture through internet memes. The course will consist of discussions, lectures, and digital studio practice that center blackness as an incubator of culture: how it is forged, cultivated, and transmitted across media. The coursework will be very much dependent on the group’s interests and current events. The group will periodically publish content and the course will culminate in an archive.
