Contested Sites: The Politics of Public Art & Space

First-Year Seminar Program 122

Usual Description

This seminar examines controversies over art in public spaces. We will consider memorials and museums and discuss how they present different narratives of the same historical event. In particular, we will consider how personal, political, or economic agendas merge in these public sites and can inform the appearance and interpretation of art. Sites will include the Vietnam Veterans Memorial & Holocaust Museums, and we will incorporate literary and historical readings.
