AH 103 - Ways of Seeing: The Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas


Credits: 4
A survey of a broad range of arts from select cultures of sub-Saharan Africa, Oceania (the South Sea islands), Mesoamerica and Native North America. The course questions the history of studying, collecting, and displaying these arts from the perspective of “primitivism,” and its related debates and biases.  It also situates them within their proper historical and cultural framework, taking into consideration everything from governance, gender, identity, audience, the role of the artist, and methods of production, to the effects of colonialism, trade and globalization, and issues of modernity, including the responses of contemporary artists.
Note(s): (Designated a non-Western culture course; fulfills humanities requirement.)
