Western Americana in the Classroom and Beyond

Dur­ing the fall term of 2011, Pro­fes­sor Martha Sandweiss, His­tory Depart­ment, and Brian Just, Art Museum Cura­tor of the Art of the Ancient Amer­i­cas, co-taught a course enti­tled “Arti­facts, Images, and His­tory: The Amer­i­can South­west.” The course explored Native arts of the Amer­i­can South­west by ana­lyz­ing Princeton’s own col­lec­tions in the hold­ings of the Art Museum, the Depart­ment of Geo­sciences, and the Depart­ment of Rare Books and Spe­cial Col­lec­tions. The Prince­ton Uni­ver­sity Art Museum mag­a­zine high­lighted the course in its Win­ter 2012 issue, also avail­able on the museum’s news page: The Museum in the Class­room.
