AAAS 68.20 Decolonizing the Museum: An Introduction to Art from Africa and the African Diaspora in French Mus

This course is designed to introduce students to African art from prehistory to the present day in French national museums. Masterpieces will be studied as products of complex cultural interactions and expressions of  socio-economic history. Through these oeuvres, the course explores the cultural context and ascribed meanings attributed these works and how they reflect the embedded legacy of French colonialism both in terms of the actual artworks and curatorial practices in France. In so doing, this course considers the effects of colonialism and postcolonialism on cultural production pertaining to African art and the African diaspora.
