AFRICAST 134: Museum Cultures: Exhibiting the African Imaginary (AFRICAST 234, ARCHLGY 134, ARCHLGY 234, ARTHIST 284B)

Museums are dynamic spaces with the potential to reinvent, rehabilitate, and recenter marginalized people and collections. This year, our seminar examines and enacts museum stewardship of material cultures of diverse African communities across space, time, and context. Legacies of colonialism inspire debates on restitution, reparation, and reconciliation, alongside actions to 'decolonize' museum practice. In engaging the politics of representation and human-object relationships, our class will challenge problematic imaginaries of Africa and recenter the complexities of cultures in the Horn of Africa spanning Ethiopia, Nubian Egypt, and Sudan. Students will acquire skills in researching, curating, and installing an exhibition based on Stanford's African archeological and ethnographic materials held at the Stanford University Archeology Collections (SUAC). This course will culminate in a student-curated exhibition that opens on Friday May 27, 2022 at the Stanford Archeology Center (Bldg more »

AMSTUD 91A: Asian American Autobiography/W (ASNAMST 91A, CSRE 91D, ENGLISH 91A)

This is a dual purpose class: a writing workshop in which you will generate autobiographical vignettes/essays as well as a reading seminar featuring prose from a wide range of contemporary Asian-American writers. Some of the many questions we will consider are: What exactly is Asian-American memoir? Are there salient subjects and tropes that define the literature? And in what ways do our writerly interactions both resistant and assimilative with a predominantly non-Asian context in turn recreate that context? We'll be working/experimenting with various modes of telling, including personal essay, the epistolary form, verse, and even fictional scenarios. First priority to undergrads. Students must attend the first class meeting to retain their roster spot.
