FA 271 Global Modernisms


3 credits

What is modernity and what is “modern art”? This course will explore these questions through a global lens that will move beyond the traditional Eurocentric study of the new forms of art that developed from the middle of the 19th to the middle of the 20th century. By examining diverse approaches to modernity from around the world, including East Asia, Latin America, India, Europe, and the United States, students will be able to critically consider themes of the local and global; tradition and avant-garde; and the art historical canon, within broader socio-political developments, such as the Industrial Revolution, urbanization, World War I, and World War II.
