ARTH 358 - Cross Cultural Approaches to Art


3 Credit(s)

Gen Ed: AC & XC credit.
How can the term “art” be applied to a cross-cultural context? This course approaches the changing definitions of this category from both contemporary and historical perspectives. Our study will include material from four broad cultural areas in detail: Native American, Aboriginal Australian, African and Chinese. We will include consideration of contemporary artists. The course will address broad topics such as the ritual use of art, authenticity, aesthetics, tradition and modernity, art education, social memory, politics and creativity. Spring.
