Course Description

This course examines broadly the breadth and depth of art history from the Renaissance to Contemporary New Media. With an emphasis on art, the tolls of its production, and its social and political surroundings, the student will address how it has developed and functioned in temporal context. Our studies will include: Florence and Siena, Italy; Paris, France; and Karlsruhe, Germany, where we plan to visit the Zentrum Für Kunstund Medientechnologie (The Center for Art and New Media Technology). Papers will be assigned in Florence, Strasbourg and Paris.
