Stories of Art II: What Can Art Do? (V4139)
15 credits, Level 4
Stories of Art II is a twelve-week lecture-based module. It continues from Stories of Art I in forming part of the First Year teaching for the Art History single-honours module and all joint honours modules with Art History. The module provides a first experience of the study of the history of art at undergraduate level.
It aims to introduce you to a wide range of works of visual art across time and across cultures. It considers many different kinds of works of art - paintings, sculptures, architecture, prints, drawings, and the so-called decorative and applied arts - and acknowledges that such objects raise a wide range of questions that can be answered in many different ways. The module is based on the principle that there are multiple Stories - rather than one single Story - of Art.
