A-H 342: Gender & Sexuality
Modern American Art & Visual Studies

This course examines American art and visual culture in its social, political, and aesthetic contexts during the 20th and early 21st centuries, particularly as it relates to issues of gender and sexuality. Organized chronologically, the course surveys key art movements (American Modernism, Regionalism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, etc.) focusing on the contributions of women and LGBTQ+ artists to American Art as well as approaches to art history from feminist and queer perspectives. In addition to traditional fine arts media, this course will also examine the role of gender and sexuality in various forms of popular culture from film and photography to advertising and television.
