Using the Judy Chicago Art Collection in the University Classroom

Possibilities include: Using the on-line website, going through the Chicago archived boxes, engaging in the Dialogue Portal questions, and viewing the videos online can open many directions for discussion. What is Feminist Art? Can men partake within the dialogue? How does this effect our everyday life?
