About

 South Africa has a history of expressive culture dating from some of the world’s first examples of rock art to today’s art that reflects the complexities of a multi-cultural society undergoing tremendous transformations. Before the end of apartheid and the establishment of a new government in 1994, much of the nation’s art, music, history, culture -- and its museums and sites of memory --were little known to the rest of the world.
Through this study abroad program, participants will have an opportunity to be introduced directly to the historical and contemporary forms of art and cultural heritage unique to this region. They will also critically assess the social, racial, religious, political, and cultural factors that have impacted these expressions and the museums and other cultural heritage institutions charged with preserving and presenting culture. Special attention will be paid to framing these investigations in the context of worldwide issues and standards of museum practice.
