An Evening with Sarah Sentilles & Rick Barot

She is currently working on a book about art and war titled Draw Your Weapons. She earned a bachelor's degree at Yale and master's and doctoral degrees at Harvard. At the core of her scholarship, writing, and activism is a commitment to investigating the roles language, images, and practices play in oppression, violence, social transformation, and justice movements.

In 2016-17, she will be Chair of the MA in Critical Theory + Creative Research at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland.
