ARTH 251 - Arts of Africa and The Diaspora

4 credits
Topics discussed will include: Art and Audience (considering the relationship between the object and its content of display, which can include masking as well as royal regalia meant to reinforce leadership); Space and Place (art works as markers of space–spiritual, domestic, etc.)–and referents of place); The Cultured Body (the human form in art, as well as dress and body arts); and Africa in the World (art works that reflect Africa’s historic engagement with the world, ie., use of imported materials, “foreign” iconography, but also the impact of African art in the world). Within these themes, we will examine select case studies in depth and will incorporate historic and contemporary forms. Check ANTH listings for up-to-date offering times.
