Debates and Contestations in Art History (AHV2002)

15 credits

This module is designed as a course of study which focuses on a topic in the history of art and visual culture where scholars have differed over the approach to be adopted in providing a satisfactory account of it. As such, it picks up on some of the themes that have been covered in the Year One module, Introduction to the History of Art and Introducing Visual Culture when the major approaches typical of the discipline were examined, and takes one case study as a means of engaging with different methodologies and the consequential production of different histories.
