Faculty-Graduate Seminar 2011–12: Art and Race, Internationally

Wednesday afternoons 4:30-6:00pm, Stanhope Hall 201
Wednesday afternoons 4:30-6:00pm, Stanhope Hall 201

Faculty Convener: Chika Okeke-Agulu

The conjunctions of art and the black racial experience and discourse in the United States have gained incremental scholarly attention since Alain Locke and the Harlem Renaissance in the early 20th century. However, in the wake of Paul Gilroy’s seminal work (The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double Consciousness), and given the international outlook of early Pan-Africanism, it has become necessary to reconsider the diverse ways art and visual cultures produce, reflect, or refract, canonical and contested tropes/theories/discourses of blackness and racial identities in the context of intra-national, national, transnational and global subjectivities. The CAAS Faculty-graduate seminar this year takes up this challenge. Our meetings with established and emerging scholars whose work is based in Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America, Europe and the Indian subcontinent, will explore through specific case studies the many ways art illuminates and troubles these questions.

The Faculty-Graduate seminar is an intimate intellectual community. Our goal is to establish a small but intellectually diverse and committed group of scholars who will attend all meetings and engage in sustained discourse during the year. Given these goals and the limited meeting space, we are accepting only ten (10) graduate students into each semester’s seminar. We encourage graduate students to commit to both semesters and preference for spring registration will be given to students engaged in the fall seminar.

Please return the registration form to this year’s Seminar Coordinator, April Peters (aprilp@princeton.edu).
