Connect in History of Art
Wednesdays 3:30-5:30pm, every other week
Announcing a new pilot program, Connect in History of Art! This is a low-stakes, one-unit course we have designed for incoming transfer students and newly declared Majors in the History of Art department. We welcome any/all Majors (or intending Majors) with junior status. Students enrolled in the course will:
- Build community with other new History of Art students
- Visit campus museums and discuss exhibitions together
- Learn about campus resources for conducting research in art history – archives, library collections, museum collections, our department’s V-Lab, and more
- Discuss current directions, opportunities, and challenges in the field of Art History
- Access mentors in the form of History of Art graduate students and faculty
- Small-group discussions about important ideas, texts, events
- Excursions to visit resources on campus and beyond
- Special events, panels, and opportunities to meet faculty, students, and alums at various stages
No papers or outside reading required—the emphasis is on face-to-face interaction with others who share an interest in art history as a critical practice. By participating in “Connect in History of Art” for one semester, you receive one unit of credit.
We will meet in 308A Doe Library every other week on Wednesdays, 3:30-5:30 pm
