AHIS 328: Studies in Global Modernisms

This special topics course focuses on the interpretation of Modernism as developed across a particular geographic area (e.g. South America, Asia, Africa). Taking a thematic approach the course will address the relations of exchange and translation involved in the historical development of modernist ideas, practices and material production around the globe. Study of the significant cultural, political, geographical and historical specificities folded into the category of Modernism encourages a critical awareness regarding how and under what conditions an art historical movement becomes prominent. These questions regarding the emergence and continuing impact of diverse Modernisms will be engaged through an in-depth study of the images and forms associated with the movement.
