Course Description

ARTH 192
Seminar: Gender and the Western Visual Tradition
Spring

This seminar explores how ideas about gender influenced the form and production of Western European art, primarily in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. We will discuss the reinterpretation of major works in light of primary sources, recent scholarship, and theoretical texts, and reconsider artists in light of critical approaches developed by gender theory and feminist studies. Examining the intersection between gender and other modes of social and cultural ordering, such as class, religion, and race, we will ask how art can inform our understanding of medieval and Renaissance society.
Offered every other year beginning 2018-19.
