Surveying the diversity of customary arts found among the world’s
peoples offers a critical and historical means for evaluating and
comprehending the human condition in the modern world. Through
looking at arts and cultures from different places, internationally,
and by examining the ways in which culture is made manifest,
especially on the landscape, in architecture, material culture, and
collective performance, this course provides both an introduction
the world’s arts and a window on the field of folklife studies.
