ARTH 104 - Survey of Global Art from Fourteenth Century to the Present

(3 credits)
This course explores the history of art and visual culture from a variety of geographical and cultural perspectives. Through a comparative and thematic approach, it studies how various techniques inform the making of a work of art; the role that works of art, architecture and other cultural products have played in different societies, civilizations, and historical periods; and how different political, religious and philosophical ideas have influenced artistic production across the globe. A museum visit is assigned to experience first-hand examples of art and visual culture from the 14th century to contemporaneity from within and outside the Western Canon.
