ARTH 643 Art and Globalization: Global Contemporary Art

  • Thursdays, 10:00 am-1:00 pm 
  • Instructor: Dr. Julia Skelly

This course will critically engage with the following questions: what exactly is ‘global contemporary art’ and why is this field of study still relatively new? For much of the course we will pay particular attention to female artists of colour and globalization. One

of the objectives of the course will be to engage with how scholarship on global contemporary art, or art in the ‘global world,’ is different from scholarship on plain old ‘contemporary art.’ What are the themes, issues, and problems that keep coming up? And how, as scholars, might we draw on art historical scholarship to think through and write about what is currently happening politically around the world?
