Description: This course will explore discourses on race and their influence on artistic endeavors in modern Latin America. Examining texts from various disciplines (biomedical sciences, education, law, sociology, anthropology, and criminology) we will discuss how dominant ideas on race that defined national identities shaped the production and reception of art, and how artists illustrated or contested these discourses in their works. Students will learn about key theories of race, Black and indigenous artistic productions, and the role of museums in this history. This class will include field trips to local museums and galleries. This course counts towards the electives requirement (Geographical Areas or Cultural Traditions Breadth - Latin America/the Caribbean Courses) in the HART major; the electives requirement in the Art History and the History of Architecture specializations (Geographical Areas or Cultural Traditions Breadth) in the HART major; the electives requirement (Geographical Areas or Cultural Traditions Breadth) in the HRTM minor; and the electives requirement (Cultural Heritage) for the MUCH minor.
