FYSP 122 - Contested Sites: The Politics of Public Art & Space


Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4HU, WRi

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. Enrollment Limit: 14.
Instructor: B. Cheng
