HISTART 101 introduces students to the disciplinary practices and goals of art history via encounters with selected great monuments of visual culture ranging from magic-charged cave art of prehistory to compelling Christian, Jewish, and Islamic monuments of medieval life, piety, and power down through the Crusades. We place each monument in dialogue with a cluster of thematically associated creations that enrich our understanding of how art expresses ideas and exerts meaning in its era of original production. We also consider how to “read” a famous monument across time — as its fame may have the power to produce new meanings in new historical contexts. Discussion sections encourage active use of campus museum collections via specially designed online engagements.

  • Textbook (Shaman Drum);
  • Coursepack (Accu Copy);
  • Online Aids.

Grading basis:

  • Three Unit Tests (1 hour each),
  • Periodic 150-word journal entries,
