Module content and teaching
The module will familiarise students with the Renaissance period. It also aims to develop students’ ability to analyse art works within an interdisciplinary framework, introducing them to the different methodologies that have been applied to Florentine art of the period: e.g. urbanism, gender history, historical anthropology, material culture studies, social history. By the end of the course, students should be able to distinguish and deploy these different approaches and to weigh them critically against each other.
Principal learning outcomes
This module will familiarise students with the debates, genres, and terminology of art and architecture of the Italian Renaissance. It thereby provides fundamental grounding for the material taught during the Venice term in the autumn of the third year.
