Art and Violence in Spain and its Empire

SPA 371/LAS 361

Info tab content
How do images communicate the pain of others? What made art so troubling that led people to attack it, and to try to regulate it? This course explores the connections between art and violence in Spain and its empire during the early modern period, a period of globalization, religious conflict, and cross-cultural encounter. We will interrogate how did representations of war, martyrdom, and sexual violence affect their viewers and shape their ideologies, and explore the dangerous power of images by focusing on phenomena such as censorship, iconoclasm, and racism.
