ARTH 301 Fall 2012 Methods of Art History

Also offered Spring 2013

This course on the methods and historiography of art history is designed to offer art history majors an opportunity to examine art-historical problems and methodological issues that have shaped the discipline. Works of art will inevitably enter into our discussions, but the main objects of study will be texts about art as well as texts about methods for an historical study of art. Topics include (depending on individual instructor): aesthetics, style and periodization; iconography, narratology, spectatorship; art and psychoanalysis, the social functions of images and the social history of art; art history and difference; and art-historical narrative as representation.
