HOW DO WE “MAP” CULTURE IN MOTION?

Describing the interaction of places, times, languages, identities, cultural formats, dominant and marginal narratives that characterize cultures in diaspora requires a multidimensionality that traditional maps no longer meet.

In today’s world, we “map” diasporas through digital narratives, and often perform culture acting as archivists and curators.

FULFILLS THE ARTS & LITERATURE BREADTH REQUIREMENTS

In this course, students will work with the cultural objects held in The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, including art, material culture, books, manuscripts, digital assets and data, learning to conduct collaborative research and documentation, to create maps and narratives, and to curate and publish their findings in museum galleries and online.
