ARTH 3340 - African Art (CI)


CI Communications Intensive
3 credits

Through geographically and thematically oriented Power Point based lectures, online video presentations, class discussions, independent research and an opportunity to attend a field trip to the NEHMA, the USU Museum of Anthropology and local cultural events, the students will become familiar with a broad range of arts, primarily of West and Central Africa, as well as North, East and Southern Africa.  While we will look at a few instances of contemporary art, the course will concentrate primarily on how the arts were and are used in the daily life of the traditional small scale societies of these particular areas of Africa. The last set of lectures will be devoted to contemporary African and African-American Art.

Prerequisite/Restriction: ARTH 2710  and ARTH 2720 ; Art majors, Art History majors, Art History minors or instructor permission
