Introductory Topics in Art History: Introduction to Visual Studies

This course explores how images structure the world we inhabit by shaping how we perceive and consume various identities, as well as how we come to understand and occupy our built and natural environment. It builds visual literacy skills through an examination of traditional forms such as paintings, sculpture, and architechture, and more popular and contemporary forms such as selfies and videos.
