This course will introduce students to anthropological perspectives on the arts. We will explore both current and historical models that consider the arts as objects/events and social processes. Among the topics to be discussed are: aesthetics, representation, commercialization, art in the service of power (royal regalia, praise-singers, colonialism), embodied art, and art as a mode of resistance. Case studies will be drawn from regions around the world and encompass a variety of genres including music, dance, poetry, theater, and the visual arts.
