This course will provide students with a genealogy of the newly-expanding field of visual culture studies through a postcolonial optic. Revisiting debates such as the relationships between materiality and the image, history and simulacra, power and looking, the course elaborates the notions of the aesthetic through the specificity of postcolonial histories.
