Expanded Course Description
Cultures normalize and legitimize, challenge and resist, understandings of gender through the arts. AAD 252 introduces socio-cultural factors influencing gender in the arts. The course will consider approaches to gender in art through select historical and contemporary analyses of education, social status, subject matter, criticism, and public perceptions. Additionally, students will explore select social, political, aesthetic, and economic factors that influence ways cultures define art and artists in gendered terms. Specific artists and their works will be explored in a context of gender. Students will be encouraged to adopt a critical perspective regarding the arts, gender, and culture.

AAD 252 has no prerequisites. The class explores a variety of perspectives on the question of "art" and the roles it may play in our lives.
