SAST 3400 - Pop Culture in S. Asia: Advertising, Visual Aesth., Posters & Photography

This course will examine popular visual aesthetics in South Asia. We will look at the aesthetics of visual culture from the 19th century to the present. Students will be trained to consider popular culture, to think about the relationship between high art forms such as painting and multi-media and the more seemingly mundane aesthetics of press photography, posters, billboards, teaching posters, etc., and the new spate of financial advertising.
