PPR338: Art, Museums, and International Relations
Not available 2013/14
In this module, the "art of international relations" is taken seriously as a starting point for investigating art and art museums as part of way of the political world of the international. Learning takes place mostly through the cases of museum histories and politics that put museums into international roles they may or may not seek directly. This way of studying international relations throws new light on the events and preoccupations of international relations as a field, including competition, power, gender politics, race, class, war, and development. Some of these topics, with illustrative examples, are as follows:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (1.5 hours) and seminar (1 hour) weekly.
