Section 001.

Instructor(s): Lisa Nevett

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

Following the collapse of Mycenaean culture, Greek art became largely aniconic for several centuries. This course concentrates on the reemergence of figurative arts in the Greek world from the late 9th c BCE onward. Why and under what circumstances did the Greeks reintroduce figurative images in their visual media? What is the nature of Early Greek images during a largely pre-literate stage of cultural development? What is the social function of images and how can we nowadays reconstitute the experience of viewing in the Geometric and Early Archaic periods? On what cognitive and perceptual foundations was the "hieroglyphic" nature of early Greek figuration created?

These questions will inform the working agenda of this class as we will look closely at a large number of figurative media in order to explore various important themes, such as the emergence of visual narrative, the performative role of images, the function of images as vehicles of memory, the complementarity of word and image as communicative media, and the creation of various iconographic conventions (prerequisites: Clas. Arch. 221 or Clas Civ 101, or courses of equivalent level).
