Art and Art History

Study Abroad: Kosovo

Art as a Tool in Post-Conflict Settings

Overview

Limited to 8 students. Open to all students of the University.
Travel Dates: March 9-17, 2018 (Spring Break)

This course takes you to Suhareka, Kosovo for an exploration of the role of the arts in post-conflict settings. Our course will explore these possibilities in an area of the world that has been at the crossroads of multiple cultures including Byzantine, Ottoman, Serbian and Albanian. We partner with teaching artists from the Fellbach-Haus Center for Creative Education in Suhareka to design and facilitate visual and/or performing arts projects with local children and youth aimed at personal growth and community building. The integration of arts and culture grounded in the historical, cultural and socio-political aspects of Kosovo will form the basis for the work and research and includes time for students to choose guided or self-guided explorations of important cultural centers and sites of memory in the region.

The trip culminates with a community and online exhibition that includes media documentation—photography, sound, video—of our shared experience. You will have the opportunity to create and participate in a community-based approach to development that is off the beaten path and truly collaborative in nature.
