ARTH 8010 - Arts of Colonialism and Empire

(3) The Arts of Colonialism and Empire is a 7000-8000 level seminar course that examines the historical relationship between the dispersal of the African Diaspora and the development of New World arts and visual cultures that have influenced the western world. It focuses on how modernity and visuality were shaped by the forced migration, dispersal, and the continuing mobility of peoples of African descent, both within and outside the continent. Themes of discussion will include aesthetics, race and representation, gender, politics and strategies of resistance, cross-cultural influences, class, and cultural identity formation.
