ART 199 - Methods/Theory in Art History

Unit(s): 2

This course offers an introduction to key methods and theories commonly used in the discipline of art history, examining multiple approaches to the interpretation of art and situating these approaches within their historical contexts. As such, it is a class about the history of art history rather than specific time periods, regions, or styles. Topics explored include the historiography of the field; the canon; iconography; formalism; feminist theory; Marxism; and post-modernism. The class includes a mixture of lecture, reading, and group discussion. Written assignments require students to articulate and apply the core methodologies studied.

Prerequisite: ART 102
