ARTH 950: Inventing the Modern Artist

Instructor: Desplanque | W 2:30PM – 5:10PM

In this class, students will take an advanced version of my undergraduate Inventing the Modern Artist class. This will also be a pedagogical professional development class. Inventing the Modern Artist progresses reverse chronologically from the 21st century to Early Modernity, investigating how our notion of artistic excellence, genius, the social status of the artist, and the image of the artist transformed over time in the West. We will use the undergraduate syllabus as the skeleton for this class, discussing readings and themes and exploring the pedagogical techniques used in delivering it, including a Digital Humanities project. Each class, we will collectively expand the Inventing the Modern Artist syllabus to make it more global and intersectional in its coverage. Students will deliver a practice lecture and develop a syllabus.
