MA in Art History: Seminar II
ART548 MA in Art History: Seminar II3
Prerequisites: MA in Art History: Seminar I
This course builds upon the resources explored and skills learned in Graduate Seminar in Art History I. Students broaden and deepen their understanding of historiography, research methodologies, and key aesthetic movements and ideas. During each class session, different components of the period being examined are discussed. In addition to these discussions and others based on assigned readings, the course includes many visits to museums and collections as well as meetings with art historians, theorists, critics, gallery owners, curators, and artists. Each student presents an oral report on his or her research and completes a paper on an art-historical topic selected by the student and approved by the instructor. Research undertaken and papers written in this seminar are essential to development of the student’s thesis.
