Course content will vary depending on the expertise of the instructor, and might include any culture of the Americas, from the Inuit to the Maya, the Aztec to the Rapa Nui, or the Bay Area painters to the New York School. Faculty experts could focus on African-American artists or on the African Diaspora, or both; they could also choose to have students address the artistic, patronage and political relationships between Europe and the United States during the Colonial Era, Reconstruction, or during or after the World Wars. Considerations of peculiarly American modes of representation, display or collection might also be the focus, as might critiques of the very notion of an American categorization of these activities. No prerequisite.
