This is a core module taught by all members of staff in the Spring Term to both streams of the MA degree (Venice and British) and to MRes students. This module is designed to help you develop the research skills needed to write your dissertation. It will cover both practical research questions and some more conceptual matters that underpin art historical research, such as analysis of objects, aesthetic judgement and academic writing.
Principal learning outcomes
Students will understand the principal theories of the history of art, deploying different approaches in the field with a critical awareness of their underlying assumptions.
