This course surveys art historical methodologies and culminates with an independent research project. It reinforces what advanced art history students have learned about the key practices and methods used in the study of the visual arts and encourages them to think about how such varying approaches have shaped the discipline itself. Students will conduct research on an object or topic of their choice, using disciplinary tools (visual and textual analysis) in accordance with a methodology that offers a productive interpretive framework for their selection. Open to senior Art History majors and minors only. Prerequisite(s):ARH 101 Introduction to Art History I and ARH 102 Introduction to Art History II.
