Place, Space, and Art History’s “Global Turn”
AS.010.626 (01)

In 1995, the publication of Claire Farago’s edited volume "Reframing the Renaissance" ushered in a “global turn” for the history of art. In its wake, the profusion of scholarly literature that contests art history’s fundamentally Eurocentric foundations and its traditional geographic delimitations of study—the nation chief amongst them—has grown dizzying. Studies of art in “cross-cultural,” “trans-national,” “imperial,” and “global” frames have quickly amounted to a daunting bibliography, one that extends far beyond art history. This seminar attempts to take stock of exactly where a global reorientation has taken art history and the methods already in use within, or that are being proposed for, the discipline. Particular emphasis will be placed on place, space, geography and context, concepts that are often only implicitly deployed in this growing literature; and we will attempt to tease out the new potentials, and attendant challenges, they pose for art historical investigation. In the process, students will gain a historiographic overview of “the global turn” and an introduction to the texts and methods from other disciplines that have proved critical to this geographic reorientation. While this course is focused on the early modern period, students will be encouraged to connect its broad thematics to their own subfields and to pursue research topics related to any period and geography; and while the seminar focuses on art history’s historiographic trajectory, students from other disciplines interested in its broader theoretical and terminological frameworks are most welcome.

Art and Interaction in the Bronze Age Eastern Mediterranean
AS.010.625 (01)

The arts of the Near East, Aegean and Egypt are typically taught separately from one another. However, the Mediterranean Sea has always served as a connector, and the diverse cultures of these areas were in close contact with one another for much of their histories. During the Bronze Age (3000 to 1200 BCE), these interactions were particularly dynamic, resulting in a diversity of arts including wall frescoes, precious jewelry, and elaborate furnishings and weaponry. This course examines the arts of the interactions among Near Easterners, Greeks, Egyptians and others. It focuses special attention on the role of artistic products in intercultural relations, including trade, diplomacy, war and imperialism. Students are not expected to have extensive knowledge of all the areas, although some experience in at least one of them will be helpful. The course will interweave establishing a knowledge base necessary to tackle this topic with broader conceptual concerns and interdisciplinary approaches (art historical, archaeological, anthropological, and historical). There will be a final paper.

Patronage and Power: The Art of the Book in the Middle Ages
AS.010.627 (01)

This research seminar surveys the rich history of manuscript painting in the Middle Ages through the lens of patronage. By focusing on elite patrons – i.e. Popes, Clerics, Holy Roman Emperors, Princes, Princesses, and other ruling figures – we will investigate how changes in style from the early Christian period through the fifteenth century reveal the fluid nature of politics and power during this volatile time period. We will visit local collections of manuscripts (e.g. the Walters Art Museum) and make use of the extensive holdings of medieval facsimiles in Special Collections.
