Course Description: 

This course will focus on the urban history and cultural politics of contemporary Cuba with an emphasis on contemporary art and contemporary developments in the city of Havana. Students will learn about the Spanish influence on early colonial art, the development of formal academic art training and the changes to art instruction and the form and content of art created since the Revolution. While in Havana, students will continue to read and participate in daily discussions as we visit various artists' studios, collections, architectural monuments, and historical sites. Several short online quizzes will be administered through the course Canvas site in advance and upon conclusion of the trip. This course is an intermediate course in art history appropriate for continuing undergraduates at the sophomore and junior level. No previous courses in art history or architectural history are necessary. However, priority will be given to art history majors, minors, and students who have taken previous Penn art history courses such as ARTH102, 106, 278, or 294.
