Class Notes: History of Photography This course surveys the history of photography as a modern mode of visual communication. While our primary focus will be on photography as an artistic medium, we will explore the wide range of uses of photography and consider how it functions as a tool of representation. Students in this course will not only improve their visual literacy and become more aware of modern history, but will also gain an understanding of the various modes of photography (artistic, journalistic, documentary, advertising, etc.), and the fundamental and long-standing relationship between photography and the mass media. Furthermore, given the fact that all of us carry cameras all the time, we shall consider the changing role of photography in everyday life.|

Class Notes: This course will primarily focus on the history of prints and printmaking from c. 1850 to the present. Specifically, this class covers the nineteenth-century Etching Revival to the 1960s print Renaissance to cotemporary 3-D printing. We will additionally asses the technological side of printmaking, studying the history of techniques like woodcut, etching, engraving, and silkscreen. In addition, and going beyond fine art prints, we will analyze magazines and the portfolios of multiples that began to appear in the late 60s. We will assess the materiality of prints and consider how these forms of cultural production contest (and also uphold in some cases) dominant ideas about originality and singularity of art. We will consider the way that prints have the potential to widely spread artistic information and make tangible social networks. No textbook|

Class Notes: This course explores an extraordinary period in the arts in which experimentation and innovation produced some of the most peculiar objects in the history of art. We shall study a wide range of media, from painting, sculpture and architecture to porcelain, furniture, wax, and shells, as well as the styles of the Rococo, Neoclassicism, and Romanticism. Since the 18th Century was an age of global expansion and vibrant cross-cultural contact, this course examines the visual and material culture of Europe specifically in relation to other parts of the world, particularly Asia and the Americas.|
