ARTH 382: Sexuality and Modernity back to courses index
This course considers 20th century art through changing conceptions of sexual identity. We will study the visual arts as a primary means through which gender and sexuality were elaborated, negotiated, and enforced in the last 100 years, from the turn of the century emergence of the "gay and lesbian individual" to ongoing shifts in conceptions of sex and gender roles. The course will examine style, content, and production contexts in diverse media including painting, sculpture, photography, and performance. . Slide presentations, lecture, and discussion.
