  Exhibit - Texas "Identity" Politics 1900 - Present Exhibit  
(Arts & Culture - UT Arlington and Community)

Texas "Identity" Politics: 1900 - Present

What is politics? When you think of politics, does it apply only to certain parts of your life? Or can everything be considered political?
Every person has multiple axes of identity: gender, sexual orientation, religion, race/ethnicity, political affiliation. As we go through life, we also have more changeable and/or ephemeral identities: student, parent, family member, professional, and so on. This exhibit focuses on political identities in Texas from 1900 to the present and the ways in which politics have become intertwined with our identities. The word politics, like propaganda, often has negative connotations, but it's really just a descriptive term that can be fraught with complexity and emotion.

Texas "Identity" Politics: 1900 - present shows different groups advocating for their civil rights in relation to various aspects of their identities, such as worker, mother, or citizen. When people advocate for or against any piece of legislation or policy that affects people's lives in any way, then they are being political.

Texas "Identity" Politics: 1900 - present is located in Special Collections, 6th floor, UT Arlington Central Library and runs through August 11, 2012. Hours are 9am - 5pm Monday through Saturday. This exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information call 817-272-3393 or contact spcoref@uta.edu
