Honors and CHID Peru Study Abroad Information Session

January 10, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Peru (CHID/Latin American Studies/Jackson School/Honors) The Arts of Politics: Cultural Agency and Social Movements in Contemporary Peru

Dates: June 21 – July 22, 2020 | 12 credits

What can art teach us about colonialism, political violence, and human rights? This summer program makes the case that art is a powerful way to understand the world and change it! Directed by anthropologist María Elena García (CHID) and political scientist José Antonio Lucero (JSIS/CHID), this CHID/Honors program offers students an interdisciplinary examination of the intersections of art, culture, Indigeneity and politics in contemporary Peru. Examining the ways in which artists, activists, and the state have used culture as a terrain for political struggle, students will have the opportunity to explore how art can provide tools for understanding the workings of colonialism, political violence, and community resilience. Through a mix of lectures, small-group activities, and a public art project (no artistic experience required!), students will learn with Peruvian scholars, artists, human rights activists in the cities of Lima and Ayacucho, Peru.
