Providing an alternative understanding of modernity and its artistic partner, modernism, this survey course traverses the political, social and cultural landscapes that informed and formed the art and architecture of Latin America, from the early twentieth century to the present. Graduate students will be expected to write a more extensive research paper (20-25 page-long paper rather than the 8-10 page paper required for undergraduate students). The use of primary sources is mandatory.

Credit cannot be earned for HART 665 and HART 265.
