LAAH 823 - Introduction to Art Historical Methodologies

3 credits
Introduction to Art Historical Methodologies will explore the theoretical threads that shape art history and, overall, how art historians construct methodological approaches. For an art historian, competing or contrasting theories are not mutually exclusive tools. In other words, historians may use a number of theories to shape an argument. The methodological framework is the foundation of the text, but the author may not reveal the theoretical structure explicitly. Critically reading to recognize how art historians build interpretive methods is the aim of this introductory course.
