Primary Instructor:

This seminar is designed to introduce graduate students to broad range of different art historical methodologies. Each week we will focus on two or three critics/historians who embody a particular methodological perspective in their writings. By comparing and contrasting their approaches, we will arrive at an appreciation of the variety and range of questions characteristic of each methodological perspective. In order to foster comparisons across the different units, our examples will be drawn primarily from nineteenth and twentieth century art in Europe and the United States.

Intended Audience:

graduate students
