|Course Cluster: African Studies|
This seminar will consider the most recent research into the art and cultural history of West and Central Africa. Emphasis will be placed on the historical context in which cultural traditions have developed. From the historically specific study of art, it is possible to detail the evolution of style, as well as the changing and contextually contingent iconographical meaning of forms. We will then turn to a case study of the Mande peoples, before broadening our field to encompass the broader geographical area of West Africa.
There will be a field trip to New York museums.
