  • Arts of Asia: Beginnings to 1300

    This course surveys the history of art in Asia from the earliest times through the Mongol Empire. Organized around a series of exemplary objects, the course explores the temporal, geographic, material, and thematic range of early Asian art through the life stories of individual things. Tracing histories of human ingenuity and value, we will examine the ways these things changed the people who saw them and were themselves changed in the process of being seen. And we will come to know them through the ways they change us.

  • Introduction to the History of Art: Modern Photography

    This class will survey the history of photography as an art form and means of visual communication in the modern era. The photograph will be considered from both esthetic and social perspectives; photography's rise as a medium of personal expression will be examined, as will technology's role in the creation of new regimes of spectatorship, and the mass dissemination of visual information. The class follows the rise of photography's acceptance as an art form in the twentieth century, and culminates with its prominence within the phenomenon of postmodernism. Prior coursework in modern history or art history is helpful. Enrollment limited 80.

  • Introduction to Architectural Design Studio

    The class introduces students to basic tools and strategies in architectural design. A warmup exercise and several design assignments guide students to explore questions about form, function, structure, and light. The semester is devoted to the design of a small house. Students are trained in rigorous, conceptual thinking and graphically and verbally clear pronunciation of consequential design logic. By the end of the semester, the proposed building design is presented in concept diagrams, plans, sections, elevations, and a model. Course is intended for first and second year students. Preference is given to actual and future architecture concentrators. To apply for this class, students are required to submit an override request and a note via CAB to specify their concentration, semester level, and previous applications for this class. Enrollment limited to 15.

  • Structural and Architectural Analysis

    This course examines in greater detail the importance of materials, structures, and processes in architecture and helps students understand how buildings are made and ‘hold together.’ The students will study key examples in brick, wood, reinforced concrete, and steel, and design a series of small sample structures.

  • Advanced Design Studio

    This double-credit studio course builds on the skills taught in the Introductory and Intermediate Studios and will challenge students to design a more complex building. Urban planning strategies are developed to carefully insert the proposed building into a hybrid, densely populated urban context within a city. Students will be briefed to either design a residential housing project or a large public building. Students will analyze the built environment and character of the site to create contextual building designs that strengthen a neighborhood. The final presentation will require a complete set of drawings, renderings, a shared urban context model, and a large-scale model of the proposed building design. A jury of invited architects and professors will conduct a discussion of each project in an exhibition-like setting at the List Art Center. This course can be repeated once for credit.

  • Inventions and Interpretations of Landscapes in the Middle Ages

    This course examines the multiplicity of the Middle Ages. The landscapes we will explore include imaginary deserts, mental pilgrimages, rabbit warrens, enclosed gardens, and tombs for the living with examples in the Iberian peninsula, Jerusalem, northern Africa, the Alps, Scandinavia, and beyond. The period covered will extend just beyond the Middle Ages to include examples in the Americas and the commodification and dissemination of its landscape across the globe. These broad examples will engage deeply with different forms of evidence to examine how we recreate meaning in the past and to question how we know what we know.

  • Power, Dependence, and Social Welfare in Early Modern Italy

    This seminar examines the visual and material culture of power, propaganda, and social justice during the early modern period in Italy (c.1450-1800). Noble families set the tone for art patronage in public and private spaces across Italy. Prominent silk merchants sponsored the construction of the first institutional orphanage in Florence, while local nobility housed slaves. Venetian fathers consigned unwilling daughters to convents, as nuns in Naples built ‘invisible cities’ and employed artists to adorn them in lavish style. ‘Talking statues’ in Rome advocated for the end of oppressive taxation by over-zealous popes as The Church marshalled indigenous artisans to propagate the iconography of Catholicism and conversion in the Americas. We consider a range of works (painting, sculpture, prints, woodwork, ceramics, textiles, and clothing) to flesh out emerging, often conflicting discourses of social welfare, charity, opportunity, and oppression across Italy.

  • African American Art History at Tougaloo College

    This course covers the history of the contributions of Black artists and artisans to the Art and Architecture of the United States from 1600-to the present. We examine the careers, works, and lifestyles of African-American artists positioning them within the larger canon of American art and artist. The course exposes the student to African American artists beyond the textbook, with studio visits to Clementine Hunters former studio, and museum visits to have firsthand encounters with artworks. The course is project based with no exams and includes a research component that utilizes the Tougaloo Art Collection and the works of Edward Bannister.

  • Cities, Landscapes, and Design in the Age of Pandemics

    This is a course about design and public health. Over the course of the semester, we will examine design proposals by architects, landscape architects, and urban planners which respond to a range of concerns about public space and public health. As a part of our study, we will explore topics including urban planning, and policy strategies proposed by Olmsted, Howard, Burnham, le Corbusier to address to fears about urban density, immigration, and contagion; the effect of treatment protocols for infectious diseases like tuberculosis (hygiene, fresh air, sunlight) on the evolution of the work of designers including Aalto, Neutra, Eames, and others.

  • Words and Modern Architecture

    From its emergence against the backdrop of the industrial revolution and European imperialism, architectural modernism has been shaped by a distinct vocabulary. This course interrogates how architects and critics have used critical terms to define modern architecture in theory and practice. We will investigate the role of six of these words in the formation of architectural modernism: nature, material, structure, detail, program, space. Concentrating on the circulation of these terms in the Anglican world, we will consider their introduction from colonial encounter and French and German discourse. We will also investigate how these defining concepts are linked to mass media.

  • Monarchs, Gods and Demons: The Art of the Ancient Near East

    This seminar explores the art and architecture of the ancient Near East, focusing on the interconnected cultures of ancient Iraq, often referred to as Mesopotamia or the “Land Between the Rivers,” and Iran from ca. 4000 to 300 BCE. We will trace the development of visual and material culture over the course of arguably the world’s oldest civilization. The class will draw on methods and topics from the fields of archaeology, Assyriology, and religious studies. In exploring the “deep time” of the ancient Near East, we will ask fundamental questions about the role of the visual in human society. What is an image? What powers does it have over our lived reality? What makes an image divine? What is a monument? How do art and architecture participate in defining institutions such as the city, religion, or the state?

  • Architectural Reuse: The Appropriation of the Past

    This seminar will consider the survival, revival and adaptive reuse of older objects, texts and built spaces in the visual and material culture of successor cultures. We will look critically at the literature on the archaeology of memory, “Renaissance and revival” spolia studies and adaptive reuse. The seminar will examine selected case studies, including the reuse of sculptural elements in the Arch of Constantine, the conversion of Pantheon into a church and Hagia Sophia into a mosque, appropriated elements in the Qutb mosque in Delhi and the adaptation of the Bankside Power Station as the Tate Gallery.

  • Exhibition as Medium

    This seminar will examine “the exhibition” as a medium for artists in the modern and contemporary period, with particular focus on developments since the 1960s. We will look at artists who have staged alternative exhibitions in non-traditional spaces, worked within museums and galleries to dismantle curatorial conventions, and, most of all, created exhibitions that stand alone as single works of art. Emphasis will be on the relationship between form and content, the definition of audience and the public, and the intersections and tensions between art and history.

  • Geoaesthetics and the Environmental Humanities

    This seminar critically examines recent formulations of “the planetary” in the environmental humanities. Proceeding from close examination of historically-specific artistic practices, ranging from the medieval sculpture of China’s “Mountain that Flew” to the land art of the 1960s, it excavates the predispositions and assumptions embodied in particular “geoaesthetics,” and situates these aesthetics in the long history of human efforts to transcend the temporal and spatial scale of the human body. Moving from the “climatic artistry” of the medieval Deccan and the thinking forests of the Amazonian Runa to the formation of modern geological science and the creation of the metric system, it considers the challenge of a deep history of geoaesthetics to contemporary theorizations of hyperobjects, planetarity, and the Anthropocene.
