Come explore the world’s great masterpieces of art and architecture through the lens of art history and visual culture studies. We will examine why these images, spaces and places are considered ‘great’ works of art and culture. Learn how gaze theories, the impact of our locatedness (i.e., our cultural roots and traditions, gender, individual frames of reference), and different material practices impact how we experience art and architecture throughout our lives. This class will be taught through a multi-cultural, multi-faith and diverse sexualities frame of analysis.
