FAA 3960(W) - Methodologies of Scholarship in the Visual and Performing Arts

Credits: 4
This course examines how the disciplines of Art, Art History, and Design are inter-related and engaged with other disciplines. Theoretical and practical models of scholarship- with focused intention on developing a capstone project-are introduced and employed. Art History issues explored include aesthetics, formalism, class, gender and race constructions, literary criticism, post-modern theory, as well as ritual and performance theory. Generally, the material for this course will be presented in a variety of ways, all designed to promote thoughtful discussion. This is a research and writing intensive course, which is designed in part to prepare visual and performing arts majors to produce their senior thesis and do graduate level work. This course is required for all Art and Art History and Graphic Design majors.
Prerequisite(s): FAA2860, or permission of the instructor.
