History of Architecture: Rec

Fall 2019

Taught By: Julia Puaschunder

Section: C

CRN: 2731

Credits: 3

This course will investigate the history of architecture and interiors from the mid-nineteenth to the early twenty-first centuries. The aim will be to challenge students to explore and appreciate major social, cultural and technological shifts, through the study of architecture and interiors. Among themes we will address are: modernity and modernization, tradition and continuity, colonialism, orientalism, design and decoration, class, gender, national identity and sustainability. Even as by necessity most of our readings will concern developments in Northern Europe and America, students will be encouraged to think beyond these boundaries and to consider a much broader geographical context. Requirements will be built around three short papers designed to demonstrate students’ understanding of and engagement with class material.

Open to: University undergraduate students. Pre-requisites: first-year university writing course and at least one prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture. Co-requisite(s): PLSD 2100 Lecture.
