Exiles and Emigres

(18) Exiles and Emigres - Marina Mangubi, Department of Art and Art History

How have works of exiles and emigres shaped Western art and literary scenes and continue to influence our culture?  We will explore novels by Vladimir Nabokov and Milan Kundera, essays and poetry by Chesław Miłosz and Joseph Brodsky, short stories by Bharati Mukherjee, works by Degenerate artists who fled Germany, and contemporary examples, such as Persepolis, an animated film by Marjane Satrapi.  Contemporary American artists, such as Kehinde Wiley, whose projects examine issues of diaspora, will also be discussed.  As the seminar is offered in the Department of Art and Art history, art-related topics will constitute its significant component.
