Art and culture today face urgent challenges posed by accelerated global movement of bodies, information and commodities, the datafication of labor and social relations, and the seemingly perpetual eruption of political and ecological crises.
RISD’s new Liberal Arts MA program in Global Arts and Cultures (GAC) invites inquiry into pressing contemporary issues at the intersection of globalization and cultural production. By uniting critical theories from the humanities and social sciences with studies in the visual, performative and literary arts, students in the program investigate diverse forms of making and their entanglements with systems of power and resistance.
