ART1711 Art and Culture Intersections


The primary goal of this course will be to help students understand and experience the link between the culture and art of a particular country. After an initial grounding in some core background knowledge on local culture and history, and key theories of the inextricability of art and culture, students will immerse themselves in the culture to which they’ve traveled. They will quickly build their understanding of the art and culture of the particular country via direct experience, observations, and reflection, as well as via seminars, lectures, and readings. As their time in the country progresses, students will move steadily to examine and connect how these precepts are manifested in the art of the country and finally to examples of ways in which art has shaped or will shape the culture of the country.
