AHIS 336: Hist + Contemporary Movements

This special topics course examines a specific historical movement (e.g. the Renaissance, the Rococo, the Baroque) through its impact on the production of contemporary art and visual culture. Taking a thematic approach the course will address questions of genre, style and influence within an art historical, socio-political and cultural context. Students will be invited to consider how and under what conditions, the ideas, beliefs and practices that have shaped an art historical movement continue to reverberate in the present historical moment. The course provides students with a greater understanding of the movement taken as special topic focus and an increased awareness of its continuation and/or re-emergence in contemporary practices.

Each section of this course covers a different topic. See here.
