ARTH 248 - Gender and Representation


An exploration of the manifold ways gender affects the production and reception of art. The course will consider the role of gender in art from three perspectives: 1) how gender affects the artist’s sense of self; 2) how gender affects pictorial representation; and 3) how gender impacts the way one views a work of art. The course will focus primarily on late-19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century art, with individual classes devoted to selected artists or thematic issues.
