Reading in Community: Toward a Global Methodology in Art History

Please join us at Colloquium this week as we hold a community conversation about Jennifer Josten’s contribution to “A Questionnaire on Global Methods” published this past spring in October. Josten’s piece advocates for a hemispheric approach to art-historical research, pulling on examples from Latin American and Latinx art historiography. Vuk Vuković will engage not only the author, but also the entire assembly, in a discussion of the ways that this contribution encourages us to take a closer look at the hierarchical and oppressive structures in which our research and teaching methodologies are embedded. Please click here to be directed to the “Questionnaire.” Josten’s piece can be found on pages 62-67.
