Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, together with the International Laboratory for Social Integration Research at Moscow’s Higher School of Economics, is launching a course on the study of diversity in society.
The course aims to develop an understanding of a wide range of issues regarding diversity and otherness in society, including differences related to age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, and physical and mental characteristics, as well as other social components that affect the construction of individuality. The goal of the course is to discuss and develop methods of social interaction within the context of diversity, which is something characteristic of almost any modern society.
The course is aimed at experts specializing in inclusive practices in the field of education and culture, and at students and young researchers interested in this topic. For two months, course participants will study concepts for understanding inclusion and social diversity in dialogue with leading researchers and practitioners and through problem-oriented group discussions, while learning about practical developments in the field of inclusive programs.
