Early Art Histories: Before 1400 C.E.

A global survey of the histories of art before 1400 C.E. Selected works of art will be studied thematically and/or chronologically with an emphasis on their role in both localized and global socio-cultural developments. Thus, students will practice and discuss the analysis of visual forms and materiality within the context of political, social, economic, philosophical, and religious concerns. Basic approaches to art historical inquiry that are most effectively applied to art before 1400 C.E. will also be introduced.
