ART 312 - Critical Readings in Art History

0.5 unit(s)

This half-unit course investigates the history of art history, its changing methods, and its evolving theories. Interdisciplinary by nature, art history has roots and tributaries in many fields of knowledge and practice: philosophy, museology, social history, architectural theory, and others. Each year the course explores a different set of transformative episodes in the history of the discipline. Readings, focus, and instructors will change from year to year.

Topic for 2016/17b: Radical Turning Points.  The work of Erwin Panofsky, Aby Warburg, André Malraux, Walter Benjamin, Henri Focillon, Meyer Schapiro, T. J. Clark and Linda Nochlin will be studied. 

Prerequisite(s): ART 105 , ART 106 , or permission of the Instructor.

First six-week course.

Not offered in 2017/18.

One 2-hour period.
