This project seeks to highlight the transformative power of making as an academic and intellectual—as well as material and embodied—practice at CUNY on several interconnected levels: from the material and experiential individual level, to the pedagogical and the theoretical. Beginning with the making practices of Text, Texture, Textile Studio (3Text), a student-run community of makers following the example of Eve Sedgwick’s pedagogy and praxis at the Graduate Center, I trace the influence of making practices via pedagogical interventions that straddle active learning and critical making in my own teaching practice. Mostly taking the form of alternative assignments and assessment, these alternative pedagogical strategies include critical reflection journals, arts praxis journals, and sketch diaries. Using case studies and critical making theory, I advocate for making practices and pedagogies in the Art History classroom and beyond, tracing their conceptual and practical import for teaching the whole student, trauma-informed pedagogy, and encouraging a more rigorous acceptance of embodied and differentiated learning for a more kind and generous pedagogy.
