Senegal: National Identity and the Arts

SIT offers accredited, field-based study abroad programs in more than 30 countries worldwide.

Senegal: National Identity and the Arts

The program examines the complex social, economic, and political issues Senegal faces and takes a critical approach to Senegalese artistic and cultural forms — from traditional aesthetic expressions to modern notions of cosmopolitanism/afropolitanism and urban identities realized in new artistic formats such as hip-hop, street art, and graffiti. You will not only learn a variety of West African art forms and what they represent but also to create and perform them. Please visit our website for more information.
