OverviewThis seminar introduces students to the historiography and methods of art history as well as to its predominant interpretative paradigms and theories. The focus of the course is not the art object itself but the discipline devoted to its study and interpretation, and the discipline?s intellectual, historical, theoretical and methodological foundations. The course is constructed as an interactive seminar with discussion of selected readings by significant authors and the application of skills and principles derived from them. The course is required of all art history majors and is also open to other students interested in the intellectual development of art history as a discipline.
