HA 239 — The History of African Textiles and Fashion
3 credits; 3 lecture hours
This course is a survey of historical and contemporary forms of African dress, adornment and fashion. Within a geographical overview of dress, students explore how historically rooted textiles have been reinvented by African-based artists and designers. Emphasis is on manufacture methods, socio-historic contexts, and dress and fashion’s importance as forms of African artistic expression. (G6: Arts; G7: Humanities; G9: Other World Civilizations).
