ARTH 470: Critical Approaches to the Analysis of Art back to courses index
Joe Lucchesi or Cristin Cash
This course explores the production and analysis of art and has two interrelated goals. The first is to develop students' critical engagement with art, architecture, and material culture. The second goal is to explore the historiography and methodologies that shape art historical inquiry, including formalist, feminist, Marxist, Foucaultian, and contemporary critical theories. Organized around several major topics that have informed the ways in which art is created and interpreted, such as form, narrative, representation, and authorship, the class also provides an opportunity for specific applications of various methodological approaches through visual analyses of individual artworks. This course offers a foundation from which students can discuss and critically analyze art and visual culture as well as broader cultural movements and historical debates. Seminar format, readings and discussion.
Prerequisite: ARTH 100 or consent of instructor.
