This course will provide an in-depth examination of a specific topic in visual culture, closely investigating the way images and monuments engage with and discuss economic, cultural, socio-political, and historical forces. Classroom discussion will be supplemented by trip sections to New York City to see many of the actual images and monuments under investigation. Topics might be focused on a theme (like the visual culture of war), a genre (like portraiture), or a medium (like photography). Whatever our topic, however, you will emerge from EP371 with a new perspective; this course is sure to develop your ability to interpret the visual world.
