ARTH599 - Curating an Exhibition (Spring 2022)

Resources for Dr. Greet's curatorial seminar and Haitian art research

At Mason libraries, we use the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) and the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) to organize and describe materials. These systems are over 100 years old, and although constantly changing are still reflective of the white European/American bias of their conception. They may not reflect local languages or preferences, or may include outdated, incorrect, or harmful language.

If you encounter any examples or have suggestions for how language in our catalog might be improved, please use this form.

Subject headings for Haitian & Caribbean art

These subject headings can be used in advanced searches in the Mason Libraries catalog and databases and external catalogs like Worldcat. This list is not exhaustive but can help as you begin searching.
