ARTHIST 490A: Indigenous Cultural Heritage: Protection, Practice, Repatriation (ARTHIST 190A, PUBLPOL 190, PUBLPOL 290)

This interdisciplinary seminar explores pressing questions relating to the protection, practice and repatriation of the cultural heritage of Indigenous peoples from North America and beyond. Using an innovative combination of in-class lectures and videos of interviews with renowned experts, including Indigenous leaders, scholars, artists and performers and museum professionals from around the world, this seminar will explore and problematize, among other subjects: the impact of colonialism, urbanization and other political, legal, economic, religious and cultural forces on understandings and definitions of "indigenous" and "cultural heritage"; the development of international law relating to Indigenous peoples¿ cultural rights; international, domestic, and tribal heritage protection and repatriation laws/initiatives including the 2007 United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), the 1990 US Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), and others; past and present Western museum practices and guidelines relating to display, preservation, provenance research and repatriation of indigenous cultural material; the meaning of repatriation to Indigenous peoples and other stakeholders; and resolving repatriation disputes, including by alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes. While case studies will relate primarily to Indigenous peoples of North America, comparisons will be drawn with the situation of Indigenous peoples in other regions, such as Oceania and Russia. Each week students will brainstorm actionable ideas for amending/supplementing current frameworks in order to give force to the cultural rights enumerated in UNDRIP. The overall seminar experience will involve discussions of lectures and video content, assigned readings, quizzes, a class visit to the Cantor Center Native Americas collection, and visits to our classroom by experts. Elements used in grading: class participation, attendance and a final project (one-day take-home exam; or research paper or film project with instructor's consent).

ARTHIST 502: Methods: Objecthood

What does it mean to be an object? Recent scholarship on the so-called material turn, including object-oriented-ontology, thing theory, and speculative realism likes to think it knows the answer. Yet as Frantz Fanon reminds us, objecthood is far more fraught and even violent than the simple imputation of agency. This seminar explores the idea of objecthood in art history, critical theory, and literature. Each week we will consider a different type of object, including paintings, photographs, furniture, props, and fetishes. How might art and material culture help us understand the processes and histories of objectification, and conversely, how might the study of objecthood open new paths of art historical inquiry that account for rather than reproduce difference? What are our ethical obligations to objects, and especially to our objects of study?
