Section Information for Fall 2019

This course will consider the history of art history, examining how approaches to understanding and interpreting art have evolved over time. Today art historians may choose from a variety of research methods such as iconography, formalism, social history, biography, as well as feminist, Marxist, and post-modern theories. This course will examine the historical context in which these options emerged as well as the implications of adopting a particular approach. The subject of this course is thus art history itself rather than a specific movement or era.
