ARTHIST 6: Art in Action: Ten Works, Ten Perspectives

The course is taught jointly by distinguished faculty in the Department of Art & Art History, each of whom presents lectures on a favored object of study, ranging from ancient Greek pottery to modern art and avant-garde cinema, including for example the 12th century Phoenix Hall complex at Uji, Japan; and the groundbreaking Raft of the Medusa by 19th century French painter Theodore Gericault. Professors of documentary filmmaking focus their presentations on issues central to their own creative work. Students thus encounter a wide range of expertise and are invited to explore major issues that structure the interpretation of great works of art and visual culture from diverse periods and different geographical origins. Participants gain exposure to a variety of interpretive strategies and historical perspectives through focused lectures and class discussions, as well as opportunities for up-close examination of original objects in campus collections. Writing assignments will develop skills in description and visual analysis, culminating in a final paper devoted to a single work of the student's choice.
