ARTH 311 - Orientalism

(3 credits)
This course critically examines Orientalism as both a way the West views the East, and as the East sometimes views itself. The focus will be on the visual arts – painting, photography, architecture and film, as well as literature and music, and how they depict the “Orient” from the 18th century through the present. Emphasis will also be placed on how the East adopted the same mode of expression as a lens to view the Islamic world. The course emphasizes the Middle East, but the Far East and India are also included in lectures, readings and assignments. Museum visits are a course requirement with a possible visit to New York City museums. Offered every other year. (CFPA; CGCL; CMCL; CSPI)
