A campus-wide program of the College of Arts and Sciences, Themester focuses on multi-faceted inquiry into a variety of topics that change each fall semester. Themester fosters the exchange of ideas and connects the issues faculty teach in the classroom to students’ lives through courses, lectures, exhibits, films, and more.
The IU Cinema Themester series is a slate of films organized around the program's given topic, and curated to encourage discovery, growth, and engagement in the critical topics that impact our world. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
Themester 2022: Identity and Identification
This fall, the College of Arts and Sciences’ Themester explores the theme of identity and identification, asking questions such as: How are identities constituted, and how do identities constitute us? How do identities gain social or scientific acceptance? What does it mean to identify someone or something? What does it mean to identify with someone or something: a cause, a community, an aspiration? Themester 2022 engages in a discussion of these questions and others.
Curated by the Themester 2022 faculty and student committee in the College of Arts and Sciences, with support from IU Cinema. This series is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and IU Cinema.
