Adjunct Faculty Openings – Fall 2019

AFR 1304: African American Art (2 sections available)
This course examines the major concepts and themes central to the study of African American art and the visual culture of the African Diaspora. The African Diaspora refers to subjects of African descent outside of the continent of Africa and the various factors that inform our understanding of this cultural construction. We investigate the production of African Diasporic subjects across various artistic practices including painting, sculpture, photography and installation. The major issues addressed include the Black Atlantic, syncretism, the New Negro, countercultures of modernity, and the limits of visibility. Case studies focus on works that show how the visual generates African American and African Diasporic identities of the past and present.
