AH201 - Crafting Art History: Case Studies
What is art history? How is it made and what are the contents of the art historian's toolbox? What equipment and strategies do art historians employ to understand, interpret, and critique art and its history? Crafting Art History examines the means by which art history is produced, exploring the work of notable scholars as "case studies" in the history of art. Students will be exposed to and learn to recognize various methodological approaches in art historical scholarship, gaining a more sophisticated comprehension of what one theorist has called "the infinite relation" of language to art. Based on the scope of a student's project or level of study there may be additional costs for materials and supplies.
