History and History of Art

You’ll be equipped with key skills in imaginative understanding, critical thinking, and confident communication. You’ll expand and deepen your understanding of texts and artworks from a uniquely wide array of contexts while developing your intellectual and professional skills and studying with outstanding students and academics.   You’ll establish firm foundations in the related disciplines of history and art history, engaging with different documents and sources. At the same time you’ll encounter works of art at first-hand in the collections of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, which includes works of modern European art and also outstanding works from Africa, Asia and the Americas.   In your second and third years you’ll select from a range of optional modules in order to pursue your own interests in more depth. These modules are focused on particular periods and address specific topics. This will enable you, for example, to examine the 20th through the history of modern conflicts and the history of modern art.   As you progress through the course, you’ll be encouraged to engage with different methods and approaches and to develop informed views of your own. You will consolidate your independence as a scholar through the completion of a research dissertation in your final year.      **Course Structure** **Year 1** You’ll begin with studies of artists, artisans, makers and making. Here you’ll engage directly with artworks first-hand in order to explore different techniques and visual effects, deepening your appreciation of their different functions and meanings. At the same time you’ll be introduced to art history as a discipline and one key period of history; medieval, early modern, or modern.   In the second semester you’ll engage with some of the most crucial topics in art history, beginning with an exploration of the role of portraiture in shaping our identities. You’ll also be introduced to periods of tension and conflict in history which have in turn provoked controversies in historical debate.   **Year 2** At this stage of your course you’ll be able to choose from a very wide range of historical and art historical topics and begin to tailor your studies to your own developing interests. These modules will allow you to develop more specialist knowledge of particular problems and periods. In the spring semester you’ll be invited to consider how your historical studies relate to contemporary debates about art and explore the role of galleries and museums in displaying the past in the present.   **Year 3** In your final year you’ll choose three modules which involve close engagement with advanced topics in history and art history. Current modules address topics such as public art and memory, medieval mapmaking and world-making, and the revolutions in France and Russia. You’ll also write an extended essay in which you will explore a topic of your own choice through a combined historical and art-historical perspective.      **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
