New Fall 2022 Art History Courses!
The Black Female Body
Dr. cam nelson
M, 9:30 AM-12 PM
Explore the history, discourses, and transformations of the Black female body as a contested site of sexuality, resistance, representation, agency, and identity in visual culture. We will consider how constructions of womanhood represent Black women as physically and socially other to the ideal woman. We will also examine how Black female artists grapple with the tendencies to exclude them from claims to womanhood, femininity, and beauty while at the same time being hypervisible as Black women.
Black Art in America
Dr. cam nelson
M, W, F, 2-2:50 PM
Explore the work of Black artists in the United States, from the late nineteenth century to the present day. We will consider the ways in which artists and scholars have endeavored to define African American art in relation to Euro-American and African cultural production as well as to the evolving social and political history of people of African descent in the United States.
