This research oriented seminar analyzes the history and historiography of the Latin American Baroque, a contested concept and complex historical experience. In European art history, the term baroque generally refers to the ornate art and architecture produced in the 17th C under the influence of the Catholic counter-Reformation. Despite conceptual difficulties, the idea of the baroque and its legacies looms large in the contemporary cultural history of Latin America. The goal of this seminar is to provide an introduction to and possible answers for these debates through detailed historical research into specific artifacts, practices and places.
