Syllabus

Challenging the idea of a single narrative story of art, this module will problematise ideas of 'art' and 'artist' by exploring the historical foundations and formations of the discipline of art history since the 18th Century. Using a number of case studies from ancient, classical, medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern art and cultures, the module will examine both the conditions of artistic production and the effects of different art historical methodologies and interests.

Each student will read out a short essay at least once during the semester. The 300 word essays on set questions are also intended to provide regular preparation for writing the assessed essay.
