Artists of the African Diaspora
ARHA 190
Fall 2006
Section: 01  

This course emphasizes the practice of the discipline of art history by approaching artistic production thematically, focusing on art historical method and theory with reference to particular case studies. When appropriate this seminar will meet jointly with other introductory courses that take this same approach to address both cultural difference and similarities of practice. This course will focus on both the so-called "traditional" arts of Africa and contemporary African artists. These artists have, since the mid-19th century, worked in a variety of styles that often reflect contemporary styles in both the United States and in Europe. We will also study the architecture of Islam in Africa.
