This course invites students to undertake a virtual engagement with museums in France, investigate periods of migration from the mid-19th century up to date, and bring visual arts into dialogue with literary, socio-cultural, and historical perspectives for a critical inquiry on questions of social and spatial configuration of ‘otherness’ in relation to migration. Bilingual potential for research in French and/or English (knowledge of French is not a prerequisite); multidisciplinary, interactive, and generative course design in an open-pedagogy and open education resource (OER)-oriented learning environment. This course is offered in collaboration with the MLC Librarian to support and facilitate the design and implementation of student OER-oriented projects with the potential for submission to OER repositories, and production of digital and on-campus exhibits.
