The course examines the historical entanglements and developments of complementary but distinct visual cultures in the southwestern United States, central Mexico and Yucatan. It traces the role of art history and archaeology in defining specific historical styles and cultural cannons and their political mobilization through travel and popular writing and exhibitions in the construction and denial of national and regional identities. It discusses varied Indigenous responses to European religious and cosmological thought and their appropriation in strategies of resistance and resilience against European and American colonization.
