Research Hall 201
Section Information for Fall 2017
This course will consider the history of art history, examining how approaches to understanding and interpreting art have evolved over time. We will look at a variety of research methods, including 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. We will also ask how scholar’s perspectives and assumptions often say as much about the time they are writing in as they do about the subjects they are writing about. Students will be required to read critically, participate in discussions, make class presentations, and engage in research for the written assignments.
Enrollment limited to students with a class of Advanced to Candidacy, Graduate, Non-Degree or Senior Plus.
Enrollment is limited to Graduate, Non-Degree or Undergraduate level students.
Students in a Non-Degree Undergraduate degree may not enroll.
