Visual Studies from the Global South


This seminar shifts the geography of critical theory, introducing interdisciplinary approaches to visual culture and art formulated outside the northern academies of Europe and the United States. Diverse readings introduce how the visual is constituted in sites that have endured colonialism and globalization. Specific topics include: word and image; space, place, and site; media and new technologies; indigenous and Afro-diasporic philosophies; and the raced and gendered body.
