Global Avant-garde and Modernist Studies Cluster Requirements

The following requirements are in addition to, or further elaborate upon, those requirements outlined in The Graduate School Policy Guide.

GAMS 400

A seminar devoted to the theory and historiography of avant-garde and modernist movements. Content will vary according to instructor, but the course will be programmatically interdisciplinary and transnational, with cluster-affiliated faculty running special sessions in their areas of expertise. The course will be open to non-cluster students and may be co-listed with a department or program.
