Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course surveys the artistic and architectural traditions of Latin America during the period of Spanish colonial rule (ca. 1520s-1820s).  It will center on visual cultures of the viceroyalties of New Spain (Mexico) and Peru, but will also incorporate sections on the colonial Caribbean, the northern Andes, and Brazil.  The course explores the legacy of pre-Columbian visual traditions in the colonial era as well as the lasting impact of colonial artistic practices in modern and contemporary Latin America.  It will also examine colonial Latin America as the crossroads of dynamic artistic and cultural interaction between indigenous, European, and African-descended groups.  Topics to be explored include issues of visual translation and transmission, art and agency, and the creation of new colonial artistic practices and idioms.

When Offered Spring.
