In this course we shall study the production and circulation of artifacts produced by Europeans engaged in the colonization of North America from the 16th to 19th centuries. In particular we shall explore how artists and patrons explored changing notions of civic identity in emerging nations: the United States, the Mexican Republic, and the Dominion of Canada.
In this course students will be expected to engage in the critical analysis of works of art and literature as cultural texts, studying particular the modes and circumstanced of production and reception.
