AH 243 - Body Politics in Early Modern Europe


Credits: 3
An exploration of how representations of bodies engaged a wide range of cultural preoccupations in Europe between the 1500s and the 1700s.  Students will explore how pictured and sculpted bodies celebrated and challenged power, facilitated pleasure and oppression, shaped religious belief, channeled anxieties about otherness, and encoded ideas about gender, sexuality, race, class, and nationality. 
Note(s): (Fulfills humanities requirement; fulfills humanistic inquiry.)
