This open access book is the culminating product of an open pedagogy assignment in VISA 2P90: Art in Revolution: Nineteenth-Century Visual Culture taught at Brock University during the Autumn 2021 semester.
In this class we explored the ways in which images can shape and challenge dominant ideas and how some of the legacies of 19th century imagery can have relevance for us today.
Each week we worked through a number of case studies intended to dig deeper into issues surrounding art and visual culture from the 19th century. Students were required to submit a response for three of these case studies. These responses were due 2 weeks after the topic was explored class. Students had a choice to submit a written response or an artistic response. This book is a showcase of some of those responses.
This book is part of the The Public Domain Core Collection which consists of a collection of public domain texts and a faculty guidebook for using those texts either as standalone resources or as the basis of open assignments.
I am grateful for the editorial assistance of Ian Ball on this project. I also want to thank Giulia Forsythe of Brock University’s Centre for Pedagogical Innovation for her support of this e-book.
