HUMS 219 Revolutionary and Evolutionary Themes in Word and Image in 18th-20th Century Europe and the Americas

Division of Liberal Arts

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

The course will consider politically motivated works of literature and art from the 18th century to the present created by revolutionary thinkers, writers, and fine artists who have sought, through word and image, to redefine their government and/or their culture. During the initial period in which a topic is to be discussed, students will be given a general review of the historical events which incited the writers/artists into action. Students will then read and discuss the given assignments in order to place them in their historical context, and consider at the same time the images created by artists working in their particular media to effect and illustrate the particular revolutionary societal changes under discussion.
