Course Description: Globalization and the changing balance of global power are prompting historians and art historians to explore the art and history of other cultures and examine the mutual influences and relationships between various regions and cultures throughout history. This global perspective also affects views of history and artifacts and art works from the past. This course offers an introduction to this new and dynamic scientific discipline. Students reflect on the relationships between history and art history and acquire the skills they need to effectively study visual cultures. Students also explore the histories of various cultures: East Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. Amongst other issues, the course focuses on globalization, imperialism, cultural cross-fertilization, ethnocentrism, modernity, and post colonialism. Students practice interpreting visual sources and reflect on the way in which cultures are represented in museums and the academic world.
