Steve Aoki on his degree in Feminist Studies
I come from this very politically conscious community in my music world. I’m in school, I want to educate myself on how to advocate for these issues that I’m learning about. How can I really make a difference? Not just reading books, but actually making serious, vital change and the most radical department on the campus was the Women’s Studies department. My favorite teachers were Women’s Studies teachers. I would take a class and when you’re fourth year, or fifth year—I stayed one more year while I finished my degree in Women’s Studies— you end up becoming friends with the professors. It’s no longer a student/professor relationship, I mean it is, but you go beyond that. I remember when professors were inviting me to dinner just to have an intellectual conversation. I learned a lot. The classes were small. The Sociology department was big. The Women’s Studies department was like twenty students and only two guys.
This was an interesting share from Steve Aoki. This comment was pulled from his interview with Indira Cesarine> STEVE AOKI ON THE POWER OF NOW, FEMINIST STUDIES AND HIS NEON FUTURE ODYSSEY – EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW
