ARHI 301 / CLST 301: Canadian Visual Culture Report a Broken Link

Art History 301: Canadian Visual Culture presents a variety of critical perspectives that help students understand display practices and cultural production in the context of Canadian history. The course introduces the basic premise of visual culture and its interpretative approaches toward different types of images. The course focuses on mass-produced images, such as photographs and prints, as well as on the technologies of display that implemented and dispersed historical and contemporary constructions of Canadian place, nationhood, citizenship, and indigeneity.
