ARTH 420 Art and Activism
An examination of both modern and postmodern contemporary art as activism sampled from Western and non-Western practices. The chronological period of study is from the end of the 1960s to the present. Theoretical frameworks to be used include social movement theory, postcolonial theory, and critical museum studies.
The M.A. and Ph.D. programs in Art History offer advanced training in the study of visual and material culture from the Middle Ages to the present. The Department is strongly committed to the training of graduate students in a variety of approaches, methodologies, and issues including the study of art, science and technology; gender, class and society; material culture and object-based analysis; museums, collecting and cultural policy; word and image studies, and post-colonial analysis.
