History of Art with Cultural Studies

This course allows you to combine a questioning and critical approach to the historical study of art with a cultural focus on theories and practices of language, image, identity, gender, race, sexuality and class. We do not take for granted that ‘art’ or ‘culture’ have been universally understood in the same way over time. You’ll learn about the history of the practices we recognise as art in the context of literature, music, film, photography and the media, to explore how societies have represented themselves and the world around them. You’ll deepen your understanding of how art has been produced and received in different societies and times, and examine cultural forms and processes that have shaped contemporary societies such as revolution, the city, war, memory, psychoanalysis and cinema. Throughout these studies you’ll engage with cultural theories relevant to the artistic and cultural activities people have used to make sense of their changing worlds.
