ENVD 4361 Dissent by Design mini-exhibit "Situating Dissent"The ENVD 4361 Dissent by Design mini-exhibit "Situating Dissent" will be housed in the environmental design gallery, located in the front entrance of the building, from September 12 to September 19. 

In this mini-exhibit, students explore definitions for hegemony, injustice, dissent and equity. Students look to the words of activists, scholars, artists and designers, and seek manifestations in the built environment.

This exploration is a response to a question all designers are wondering a bit about: “why should environmental designers understand dissent?”

The set of definitions and images considers dissent as a precursor to equity and situates dissent in response to injustices that arise from hegemonic ideologies.
