Two Teaching Exhibitions 

Two small exhibitions connect fall courses in history and French to art objects both from the Carleton art collection and on loan from other sources. David Tompkins’s “Visualizing Friends and Enemies in the Socialist World” seminar will analyze Socialist propaganda from Russia, China, Cuba, and elsewhere. Under the guidance of Christine Lac, students in introductory French classes and their teaching assistants will explore the cultural significance of French people, places, and things as represented by French and Francophile artists.

Supported by Visualizing the Liberal Arts (Viz), with funds from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
