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


FDR: HA
Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring 2015 and alternate years

No prerequisites. Appropriate for students of all class years. 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.
