COLLECTIVE QUESTION (CQ) is a working group comprised of Julie Niemi, Steven Chodoriwsky, and Christopher Lee. Collective Question creates projects that respond to themes and questions of radicalism and oppression within systems of power, in this current case, the university. CQ’s current research looks at Tolstoy College at the University at Buffalo (1969–1985) as a case study and the syllabus as a utopian document of subversion.
We are invested in the spirit of studying together, of showing process, and inviting others along. We work by building, publishing, and talking with and through host/partner institutions.
