This course cov­ers key debates in the­o­ret­i­cal approaches to con­tem­po­rary art, mate­r­ial cul­ture and visual stud­ies. From new mate­ri­al­ism, spec­u­la­tive, rela­tional and new media aes­thet­ics, to crit­i­cal top­ics of inequal­ity, social and cli­mate jus­tice and the most recent debates around the Black Lives Mat­ter, #MeToo and LGBTQ+ move­ments, key texts and art works are approached together with inter­dis­ci­pli­nary breadth. Assign­ments in the course focus on each student’s deep and crit­i­cal engage­ment with their own topic, research agenda or medium of expression.
