The Harlem Semester Engages Students With Harlem’s Rich History in New Ways

The class “Romare Bearden: Home is Harlem” was taught in partnership with the Studio Museum in Harlem.

Students in the class “Freestyle and Displacement in Contemporary Art Practices” explored their own subjectivities in ways that intersected with the concepts examined by the artists in the museum.

Nineteen students spent the spring semester exploring how James Baldwin’s work examined “the changing geography of Harlem around race, sexuality, gender, religion, and American power."
