The Visual Culture of Classical Antiquity
This course is concerned with the visual culture of classical antiquity and modern theories of its study: Greek and Roman sculpture, architecture, mosaics, painting, and urbanism. It brings together archaeological, art historical and historical approaches to examine how visual material was treated and understood in antiquity and reinvented for centuries to come. As well as learning how to look at ancient visual evidence and to use it to construct art-historical and historical arguments, students also study a range of responses to and theories around it, from various periods of classicism in antiquity to modern advertising, from stylistic analysis to modern media studies. The course includes study trips to sites in the region, such as Kedleston Hall and Castle Howard, as well as to the British Museum and museums in Oxford, Cambridge and Liverpool.
