The Terra Visiting Professor at the John-F.-Kennedy Institute JoAnne Mancini (Maynooth University) offers the following courses on American Art in the winter term 2021/22: 

  • Landscapes of American Art (BA course)

Tuesdays 4 – 6 p.m. Kennedy Institute (Lansstr. 7-9, 14195 Berlin) room 319; course number 32104 first session on November 2, 2021. This course will be online in November and December, starting in January there might be in-person teaching if possible.

This module will explore the history of American art through the theme ‘Landscapes of American Art’. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, it will consider some of the ways in which American artists have engaged with built and natural environments, how that engagement has changed over time, and how that engagement relates to broader trends in American culture. At the same time, it will also explore some of the ways in which the making and unmaking of landscapes is itself an aspect of American visual and material culture, analysed not only by art historians but also by disciplines such as geography, history, and urban studies.
