Advanced Seminar in Art History (WI)
Despite the tremendous attention given to European figurative art, the same scrutiny has not been applied to contemporary or global art movements, where figures are the subjects.  This class will investigate the human body and the figure in art through the literature of art history, feminism, gender discourse, psychoanalysis, global modernism, post­ colonialism and more. Students will work on an independent research project and produce a final research paper.  •*This class may have the opportunity to work virtually with other classes being taught simultaneously at international institutions on related topics. Details will be forthcoming in Spring/Summer 2016.
