SSA Faculty Visiting Guest Artist at Wesleyan

Congrats to professor Jerome Haferd, who is a 2022-23 Wesleyan EAI Visiting Artist Fellowship recipient!

From Wesleyan Center of the Art‘s Instagram post ( @wescfa ):
Meet Jerome Haferd (@jhaferd), Visiting Guest Artist Fellow: “As a Black, mixed race, and LGBTQ+, my practice of architectural and urban design, teaching, research, and advocacy seeks the transformation of design practice through the lens of Land, Blackness, Indigeneity, and other historically marginalized subjects and modes of cultural and spatial production. This expanded practice includes innovative collaborations and curricular engagements in sites and with communities outside the mainstream ‘canon’ of architecture.” #EmbodyingAntiracism #WesCreative @wesleyan_u @brandt_haferd @darkmatter_u

“Through this remarkable interdisciplinary cohort and in close collaboration with our partners, we have the opportunity to align our existing efforts, provide much-needed peer support, and cultivate new platforms for leadership training that nourish our campus as an antiracist environment,” said Nicole Stanton, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Professor of Dance, Environmental Studies, and African American Studies. “This project brings together faculty from Film, Economics, Dance, and Theater, community organizers working on housing discrimination, equitable access to arts experiences, and antiracism in the Middletown community, and guest artists who work in the realms of architecture and performance and their intersection with black liberation. Our Embodying Antiracism Think Tank will give these extraordinary individuals a place and a form for collaboration, study, and action.”
