New Course Supplement 2017


ARTH 48.06 Borderlands Art & Theory

This seminar traces the developments of contemporary art practice in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, and subsequently expands beyond this physical location to include artworks that reflect on living in between cultures, races, and languages. Students will develop a toolkit for analyzing the way borders shape culture and identity (race, gender, sexuality, class, religion, and ethnicity) in transnational points of contact. With an emphasis on printmaking, performance, photography, and film, the course will dwell on borders that respond to paradigms of fear and desire, contagion and containment, utopia and dystopia. Students will enhance their skills in visual analysis and writing, and refine their ability to conduct original research. No pre-requisites or prior knowledge of Art History and Latinx Studies is required for the course.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:ART; WCult:CI

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
