This course focuses on the challenges of writing histories of architecture, the built environment, and its representation in opposition to capital, the state, and other types of power. We will examine the ways in which power is exerted over territories and subjects, the work of agents within, against, or outside these systems, and the challenges of writing about these spatial struggles. Readings complicate art and architecture historiography with the work of Postcolonialism, the Black Radical Tradition, Latin American Marxism, Decolonization theory, intersectional feminism, and other groups.
