ARTS 360 - Borderlands (AH)
Examines the form and transmission of art and architecture in the eastern and southeastern borderlands of Europe from the 15th through the early 19th centuries. By focusing on early modern “cultural fault lines” students study the ways in which traditions and identities particular to the area shaped visual expression and the built environment. The course draws on examples chiefly from within the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Kingdom of Bohemia, the Kingdom of Hungary, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Venetian Republic. Students will consider what is particular about the arts and architecture in the borderlands, and by extension the impact of geography on visual culture.
