Paid opportunity to current KU students to design posters for ongoing KU art history department lecture series.

Collectively entitled Intersections of Identity: Expression, Exchange, and Hybridity, the lectures explore the following questions: What constitutes identity, and how do people navigate, form, and reform their sense of self? How can the study of art and its history help us to consider the diverse identities expressed by visual culture and its creators? By doing so, the series seeks to amplify the voices of scholars and artists whose work explores individual and collective identities as those intersect with notions of the body, dis/ability, gender, heritage, and race.
