ARTH 504 Fall 2012 Methods of Art History and Criticism

This is a seminar in the intellectual history of the history of art, with some concentration on the ways in which this disciplinary tradition has been challenged by recent critical theory. It will begin its study with the "founders" of the field and end with issues and problems that generated the "new art history" twenty years ago and "visual studies" in the last couple of decades. Topics to be covered include: style, iconography/iconology, semiotics, identity politics, formalism, deconstruction, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, feminism, Marxism, gender studies, post-colonialism, and thing theory. Resident Clark Fellows will occasionally talk to us on perspectives of their choice.
