Courses: Visions of Mexico (HISTH317A01)

Fall 2010

This course investigates representation of Mexico and "Mexicandad" (Mexcianness, or Mexican Identity), with an emphasis on the history of images and visual culture in the 19th and 20th Centuries. Our goal is to appreciate, but move beyond, art history in order to understand the social, cultural, and historical factors that construct and are preserved in visual images representing modern Mexico, as well as our responses to them.
