Art and Art History Syllabus

This syllabus features significant books from our Art and Art History e-book collection that provide innovative new ways of evaluating the role of art in society. These books expand the narrative of art history to include women, LGBTQ artists, artists of color, indigenous artists, and artists from Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Duke University Press also publishes art history journals Archives of Asian Art and Nka: Journal of Contemporary African Art (not included in the collection).
