ARTH 298 Special Topics in Genre Studies: Black Atlantic Art

  • Mondays, 11:45 am-2:30 pm
  • Instructor: Dr. Joana Joachim

In this course, we will focus on some of the key figures, moments and issues related to Black Atlantic art. This course will offer a critical survey of Black diasporic art and history focusing on fundamental concepts and practices such as Black Atlantic, creolization, and critical curating. We will examine cultural production by Black people across the Atlantic world at different times. In this course we will also think critically about the disciplines of museology, curating and art history in relation to global histories of anti-Blackness and settler colonialism.
