Course Description

Formerly FINA 2250

Contemporary cultural theories have an effect and influence on visual arts and other media. Through lectures, image and video presentations, and seminar discussion of assigned topics, students learn that critical and cultural theory is central to the production and understanding of representation, whether visual or textual. Students engage in critical reading and articulating themselves in both verbal and written arguments.

Students will receive credit for only one of AHIS 2250 or FINA 2250.

Priority registration in this course is offered to students admitted to the Certificate in Art History and Diploma in Fine Arts.
