NAS 30.21 Native American Art and Material Culture

This course examines North American Indigenous art and material culture through interdisciplinary perspectives. Throughout the course students will gain a greater understanding of the role that the arts play in the social, cultural, economic and political lives of Indigenous peoples. This course envisions art not as something that merely reflects experience, but as a tool that is used to create new forms for imagining and shaping the world. During the term, we will examine how artists, novelists, historians, anthropologists, art historians and others have contributed to an interdisciplinary dialogue about Native American art and material culture.

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.
