VIC328H1: Materializing Cultural Identities

Hours: 
24S

Students examine the expression of cultural identities in objects. Students are taught to think critically about the construction, use, display, and exchange of objects with significance for cultural identity. In addition to lectures and discussions, students participate in guided visits to sites – everyday, ritual, institutional – where negotiation of identity through objects occurs.
