ARTH 391: Undergraduate Research Seminar – Post-Revolution Mexican Mural Painting
MW 3:35 PM – 4:50 PM / Dr. Douglas
This seminar investigates mural painting and state patronage in post-Revolutionary Mexico, from about 1921 to about 1945, when artists engaged politics in monumental public works. The course will focus on the murals of José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros, known in Mexico as “los tres grandes” or “the three great ones,” as well as on the relationship between art and politics. At the same time, the seminar will serve as a practicum in art-historical inquiry, research, and interpretation for Art History majors, emphasizing fundamental visual, critical, analytical, and writing skills.
ARTH 957: Seminar in African Art – African contemporary art: in (hind)sight 2020
T 2:00 PM – 4:40 PM / Dr. Carol Magee
Examined through the lens of African artists (broadly defined), the course will explore the ways contemporary artists respond to the world around them. As such it will turn its attention to local and global markets, social change, political activism, and commercial career paths among other things. We will looking at artists who work in a variety of media and for a range of audience types, while the readings we engage with will draw from a wide variety of disciplines including geography, literature, anthropology, urban studies and economics. The first part of the semester will build a body of shared theoretical and historical understanding to ground the class in common knowledge before students begin work on individual projects that explore their own interests.
ARTH 971: Seminar in Renaissance Art – Objects and Materials in Renaissance Portraits
M 2:30 PM – 5:10 PM / Dr. Tania String
This seminar will be concerned with portraits in early modern Europe – portraits of different types of men, women, families, and other groups – and the objects with which those individuals chose to be represented. It will be our aim to identify and interpret the objects – books, swords, gloves, animals, and other miscellany – as well as the furs, silks, and velvets worn by sitters for these portraits. Materials and their materiality, attributes and their communicative loadings will drive our investigations. We will use portraits in the North Carolina Museum of Art as our principal case studies, making sustained use of the NCMA’s extensive collection of Renaissance portraits.
ARTH 980: Seminar in Modern Art – Art, History, and Archaeology
R 3:30 PM – 6:10 PM / Professor Daniel Sherman
This research seminar will explore the complex and intricate relationship between archaeology, history, and visual culture in the modern West (with occasional excursions to other parts of the world). Topics will include the emergence of a modern archaeological method in the 19th century, and its resemblances and dissimilarities to historical methodologies; the role of visual representation in the ideological framing of archaeology; the collecting and display of discovered objects; the fascination of artists with ruins and with the processes of archaeology, from Hubert Robert to Giorgio de Chirico and beyond; and the role of photography in documenting digs and developing archaeological knowledge. Although the course begins in the Renaissance and is primarily concerned with the period from 1750 to the mid-twentieth, for their research papers students will have the opportunity to delve into a topic related to their own research interests.
