Picturing women and madness

Students in That Chick is Crazy: Women and Madness, the Women’s Studies Program’s special topics course at The University of Akron this fall, created visuals to go with their final papers.

Their artistic work ranged from acrylic to watercolor to collage. Take a look at some of their creations, posted below.
