Department Section Description: 

Participants in this class will explore current and longstanding issues in the study of "folk" or vernacular art. The first portion of the course will be devoted to an examination of the terminological distinctions, research methods, and theoretical orientations used by folklorists in the study of folk art and material culture. We will then examine topics that expand or challenge conventional notions of folk art, such as informal art environments, subcultural expressive behavior, recycled objects and art, body adornment, street art, outsider art, and visionary art.
