First Year Graduate Seminar: Methods

Tappan Hall 210
M 4:00 - 7:00
3 Credit Seminar

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.

Estimated cost of materials: $50 or more, but less than $100.
