The Department of Media and Cultural Studies offers three courses on various aspects of the cultural movement called Afrofuturism. Students of UCR ARTS posit and design a “liberation technology”—a fictional device or artifact that is diegetic in nature and meant to spur conversation, usually delivered via a story or other narrative method. Their final projects are available via the Culver Art Center’s virtual display space.
