Critical Approaches to Art History and Visual Culture (Autumn semester) explores a range of theoretical issues relating to the study of art history and visual culture. The module helps prepare students for the philosophical questions we need to address in order to undertake a historical analysis of images.
Optional Art History modules include:
- Landscape, Space and Place
- Image and Identity
- Visualising Conflict
- Art and Spectatorship
In addition, students take one module in a department other than Art History, such as History, Geography, or Culture, Film & Media.
In preparation for researching and writing a 15,000-word dissertation, students undertake a series of focused workshops to support their project throughout its development, from defining a research topic through to planning and writing the dissertation. Each student will be assigned an academic supervisor who will advise on the development of their project in a series of individual tutorials.
