Choose a topic related to the visual arts of the Black Arts Movement (c. 1965-1976) that will allow you to go deeper into a particular area of study, over and above our regular readings and discussions. Your topic should be unique and original, and should be open-ended enough to allow you to use an analytical approach rather than just factual reiteration of information found elsewhere. Include sufficient historical and biographical information for context.
This is a WID course so our emphasis is on how to write within the discipline. Art History is a discipline that requires one to develop complex skills for reading both written text and visual text, and for being able to write and verbally articulate an analysis within a historical context.
If you have suggestions or comments, please let me know.
