This course, in the form of seminars, requires active participation from students. It is intended for students in their fourth year who have already engaged seriously with art history during their previous study. It aims to deepen students’ understanding of the discipline of art history. The course interrogates prevailing art historical scholarship by exploring both the parameters of the discipline in general and specific locations or eras. Case studies consider modes of interpretation in combination with primary documents, secondary interpretations, and historiography.
Assessment: 100% coursework.
Prerequisite: At least one Fine Arts course at the 3000 level and three other Fine Arts courses at the 2000 or 3000 level.
