Global Feminisms

Spring 2019

Taught By: Rashmi Viswanathan

Section: A

CRN: 7176

Credits: 3

The last two years have seen an unprecedented international turn in the curatorial programming of the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Tate Modern (London), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), who have either created curatorial posts focused on the Middle East, South Asia, and Latin America, or organized major exhibitions focused on art from those regions. Their efforts to internationalize their collections, exhibitions, and scholarship reflect the emergence of a discourse on ‘new globalisms’ in the museum context that, while often taking into consideration their diverse political histories, neglects their modes and expressions of feminism. The task of this course will be to look at feminist art, activism, and curatorial practice in the non-West, in order to initiate a discourse on feminist art in the global context.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students. Pre-requisite(s): first-year university writing course and at least two prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture. One of these courses should be 3000-level.
