Description

Interdisciplinary Elective Course


This course is focused on helping students develop skills to see through, think about, and communicate ideas about African arts. Students will combine visual, critical, and reflective modes of inquiry in approaching both African artworks and ensuing articulations—(audio)visual, literary, scholarly, and critical—of experiences/analyses triggered by those artworks. African arts will be considered from an experiential, contextual, and humanistic, perspective, and so, connections to geography, history, philosophy, and other arts will always be present. In this course students are thus expected to develop experiences, reflect and articulate them in oral, written, and/or (audio)visual form.
