ARHI189S PO - Contested Spaces in 19th Century American Art and Architecture

When Offered: One-time only; spring 2019.
Instructor(s): Staff
Credit: 1

This course will look at the ways in which artists and architects engaged in redefining public and private spaces in the U.S. during the 19th century. These shifts were the result, in large part, of wars, industrialization, immigration, and urbanization, and were impacted by race, class, gender, and ethnicity. Topics will include, among others: the architecture and landscapes of plantations; the representation of territorial conquests and western expansion; the creation of a touristic landscape; the architecture and landscape design of urban beautification and social reform; and domestic spaces and notions of gender. Throughout the semester, we will examine the pressures of class, gender, race, ethnic and immigrant identity - these issues are inseparable from considering which spaces were contested and how these spaces were ultimately shaped in real and imaginary ways. Letter grade only.
