Lifting the Veil: Colonization, Critical Consciousness and Community Development in Rural Alaska
September 21, 2021 with Charlene Stern

Education plays a critical role in the development of both our individual and our collective consciousness. It can either serve to broaden or to narrow our awareness of the world. This presentation examines the interplay between colonization, critical consciousness and community development in rural Alaska.

The Queer Art of Holding Still
August 23, 2021 with Jonathan VanDyke

New York City based visual artist and performer Jonathan VanDyke conceives of holding still as a generative, active state of being. VanDyke draws upon his experiences creating and enacting durational performances – some lasting as long as 48 hours – along with his work being part of and advocating for marginalized communities, including many collaborations with queer-identified performers worldwide. Encompassing video documentation, deep dives into art history, and a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to stand and view a Jackson Pollock painting for 40 hours, VanDyke helps us conceptualize how we can all benefit from long pauses. His research and practice take on special meaning in a year of complex transitions.

Jonathan VanDyke is currently a guest faculty member for the UAF Undergraduate Interdisciplinary teaching our students about multidisciplinary approaches.
