Course meets the Fine Arts general distribution requirement.

Although most histories of Surrealism focus on developments in France in the 1920s, this course introduces a more inclusive narrative of international developments including those in Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the United States from the 1950s to the present.

ART 394-01  untitled (Museums)
TR 03:00 pm-04:30 pm CARN 06B Legge, Rousseau
*Cross-listed with ANTH 394-03 and CLAS 394-01; first day attendance required; no prerequisites; counts as humanities general distribution* Museum studies stands at the confluence of a range of critical topics that span artistic, cultural, ethical, and legal questions. We will explore these issues and more in addition to learning about the practicalities of a range of museum departments and jobs (including collections management and care, curation, development, and education). The museum field is broad and inherently interdisciplinary, reflecting the liberal arts at work. Thus, this course will include a major Digital Liberal Arts project: reconstructing Macalester’s now-defunct museum. We will work in Macalester’s archives to determine what it consisted of and what happened to the items from the museum when they were removed. We will visit the local museums to which some of the original museum material was transferred. We will then transition into reimagining a “Macalester Museum” with Omeka’s digital content management system. This hands-on exploration of Digital Liberal Arts and Digital Storytelling will draw upon a wide range of texts and experts to consider how our concepts have changed regarding what makes a museum.
