It seems harder and harder these days to find individual conviction in relationships pertaining to current societal events, given that so many voices on so many issues go unheard. By finding like minded people we can begin to discuss and debate a variety of dominant cultural beliefs and practices which the majority seems to accept as the norm (or what the esteemed cultural studies expert, Stuart Hall, has called common sense). In other words, there is a pressing need for courses or workshops that provide students with the opportunity to express their own concerns and help them gain the necessary critical skills.
