Our Identities, Our Community is a foundational identity workshop designed especially for first-year students. As individuals, we bring a variety of different identities with us to the Hampshire community, many of which take on new meaning as we immerse ourselves in our new surroundings. This workshop will help participants to understand better their own multitude of identities, the ways in which they intersect, and how they inform their experiences at Hampshire College and in the U.S. Participants will be introduced to behaviors that support dialogue in a diverse community, with the goal of empowering themselves and others to continue to engage in conversations about social justice, oppression, power, and privilege on our campus and beyond. Facilitated by the Design Studio for Social Intervention.
Want to learn more about identity and how to engage in dialogue about difference? Join us!
