“The Social Infrastructures course has been incredibly eye opening for me. From the interactive class sessions to the invigorating off campus classes. I consider every experience I’ve undergone in this course to be incredibly valuable. We’ve dived into the complexities around the notion of community and are currently interrogating the role of perspectives in shaping our beliefs and outlooks on certain things.
