ARTHIST 494: Complicating Minimal Art: Racializing, Queering, and Politicizing a Canon (CSRE 394)

This seminar uncovers the contributions people of color, women, and queer artists have made to Minimalism, a popular and influential style of art defined by sleek geometric forms. Students will critically engage canonical texts, which often privileged the work of white male artists, and consider how race, gender, and sexuality have informed these narratives. Students will also examine the understudied historical events that have influenced artists and their work, such as the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam War, and AIDS Epidemic.

ARTHIST 497: American Mystics

This seminar will consider the role of mysticism in American art and culture. Long denigrated as irrational or escapist, mysticism in fact offers a site from which to investigate and challenge entrenched assumptions of linear time, historical positivism, hierarchies of taste, and rationality that remain the epistemic grounding of art history. Topics covered will include Transcendentalism¿s debt to Buddhism; the Aesthetic Movement; Aleister Crowley, Kenneth Anger, and occultism; Rastafarianism; Afrofuturism; psychedelia, drugs, and the counterculture, among many others. Readings will include work by Max Weber; Theodor Adorno; Sylvia Wynter; Toni Morrison; Marcel Mauss; and Ashon Crawley. Special attention will be paid to issues of race, ethnicity, and decolonizing methodologies.
