This advanced seminar explores a range of methodologies and theories that inform the fields of art history and visual studies. Students will engage with significant methodological approaches to art history and visual studies since the mid-eighteenth century to the present, including formalism, iconography, Marxism, semiotics, psychoanalysis, feminism, post-colonialism and critical race theory, theories of cultural techniques. Emphasis will be placed on different methods of analysis and interpretation, as well as the history of the development of the respective fields of art history and visual studies, and their interdisciplinary dialogue. Through this course, students will become aware of their own methods of interpretation, and they will also ask what today constitutes the objects and modes of the study of visual art, culture, and media. This is a required upper-level course for Visual Studies majors and minors. Recommended prerequisite: LVIS 2001 Introduction to Art History and Visual Studies. This upper-level course is restricted to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
