    • In this three-part course, participants will unpack the contentious questions of authenticity, appropriation, and authority in contemporary art through various case studies and critical approaches.

      This session’s topic is “Appropriation” with Erich Hatala Matthes, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Wellesley College

      How can philosophical methods help us understand issues in the arts? This concluding session will provide a unique lens that helps differentiate cultural insiders from outsiders and the fine line between offensive and harmful.
