ARTH 371 - Masculinity and American Art

In this seminar we will explore the intersection between the United States’ visual culture and its historical constructions of masculinity, seeking to understand the ways gender, race, sexuality, and class have shaped both. Throughout the semester we will seek to understand how artists and critics have presented masculinity and American character — however an age may have defined them — as synonymous, and to examine the ways in which challenge others have challenged this assumption.
