Periodization and its Discontents
AS.010.629 (01)

This seminar scrutinizes the problem of periodization between the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period (or, the “Renaissance”). Topics include various medieval “Renaissances” (e.g. the Carolingian & 12th century); early modern attitudes toward the Middle Ages; the relationship between arts north and south of the alps during the late fifteenth century; the persistent use of medieval techniques and materials during the Renaissance; the problem of perspective; Nicholas of Cusa; and, the “International Gothic Style”. Readings include Panofsky, Belting, Nagel & Wood, Nagel, Campbell, Gombrich, Da Costa Kaufmann, and Kubler.

Theories and Works of “The Baroque”
AS.010.633 (01)

There is perhaps no more confounding, though also no more persistent, art historical concept than that of “the Baroque.” This course introduces students to foundational histories and critiques of “the Baroque” while exploring works of art that have proved central to these formulations. That is, this course will balance careful reading of historiography with close examination of works of art (both digitally presented and visited in local collections). Students will come away with a layered understanding of the Baroque objects—from relatively small-scale museum works to major architectural and sculptural monuments—and their place within the broader evolution of the history of art. Particular attention will be given to newer global and (post-)colonial approaches to notions of the Baroque, ultra-Baroque, and neo-Baroque.

Interrogating the Material Turn
AS.010.638 (01)

This course considers the turn to centering materials and materiality in the history of art. Since the publication of Michael Baxandall’s Painting and Experience in Fifteenth Century Italy (1972) and in particular since the turn of the millennium, critical engagement with the materiality of art has proliferated. This seminar will tackle renewed investment in materiality within the discipline of art history and draw on perspectives from archaeology, philosophy, anthropology, conservation science, feminist and queer theory, and postcolonial studies, among others. Particular emphasis will be placed on the polycentrism of materiality as a theoretical lens that cuts across seemingly disjunct cultural, social, and political frames and subject positions. While this course focuses on the art of the ancient Mediterranean, students will be encouraged to bring their own subfields to bear on the material turn and to pursue research topics related their individual research goals. Open to interested students from all disciplines.

1525: Prints and Politics in the German Reformation
