Thick Descriptions understands that human identity is fluid and influenced by many factors. To support this understanding, we offer Engagement Sessions and Elephant in the Room - Unboxed that examine the history of traditional terminologies, how each impacts our understanding of ourselves and each other and, why we must shift beyond "what we have always done".
Elephant in the Room - Unboxed - A monthly conversation about those topics most are uncomfortable to address and talk about. Although we share categories such as race, gender, language/dialect, class, geographic spaces and so many more, all human beings are different. We operate and live through diverse perspectives.
Each Engagement Session demonstrates the multiplicity of human identity, pushing against social constructs that "place us in a box/boxes". From the perspective of language, social/cultural, biology and historical artifacts, we discuss, explore, examine and attain knowledge of the human experience within Oklahoma and around the world.
