Upcoming Events

  • ZSR Library, Library Auditorium (Room 404)
    The Study of Religions and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies welcome you to attend the next Artivism@Wake event featuring Dr. Oludamini Ogunnaike, Associate Professor of African Religious Thought and Democracy (University of Virginia). Please join us envisioning poetry and prayer as powerful vehicles to express social justice. Since 2019, “Artivism@Wake” is a series organized by professors Kimberly Wortmann (Religion) and Jieun Lee (WGSS) in collaboration with other Wake departments and programs in the Arts and Humanities. This series include events, lectures, and performances by activists, artists, and scholars committed to bridging the gap between art and activism, particularly around issues pertaining to religion, social justice, feminism, and queer experiences. An artist-led workshop will further enable Wake students to transform theoretical knowledge that they acquire in the classroom into embodied practices of social justice and feminism.
