ARTH 347 - Forget Me Not: Visual Culture of Historic and Religious Memorials


FDR: HA Fine Arts Distribution
Credits: 4

This class analyzes the visual material of memorial sites that shape social identity. Whether simple or elaborate in their construction, these creations allow people the space to connect with and/or honor a person or event from the historic or even mythological past. This global and thematic examination of memorials considers three primary foci: the built environment of a memorial; the performative role of visitors; and the function of memory at these sites. No prerequisites. Appropriate for students of all class years.
