McKinney Conference Room, Watson Institute, 111 Thayer St.

Lunch will be served.

The Department of the History of Art & Architecture and the Center for Contemporary South Asia present the second forum in the Art History from the South series. The forum will be led by Anthony Bogues, Asa Messer Professor of Humanities and Critical Theory, Professor of Africana Studies, and Director of the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice at Brown.

This year, the interdisciplinary forum, Art History from the South, engages experimental practices of art and architectural history that emerge fromand make connections acrossthe geographic and epistemic ‘south.’ In the format of a reading group that will meet twice a semester with one artist’s talk, the program includes scholars from Brown and beyond who will discuss their innovations in practicing art and architectural history. Together, we will consider arts across a range of locations and historical circumstances, test out methods like listening to images and tracing terminologies, and consider a variety of perspectives from eco-aesthetics and feminism to studies of diaspora, migration, and foodways. 

Organized by Itohan Osayimwese, Holly Shaffer, and Vazira Zamindar
