Art and Music in the Middle Ages

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

In the liturgical and courtly culture of the Middle Ages, music and the visual arts were inseparable. To examine art and music together is the aim of this course, integrating these two fields of study as they were integrated in their historical context. Working through case studies from the ninth through the fifteenth centuries–including the mystic plays of Hildegard of Bingen, the scurrilous satire of the Roman de Fauvel, and Jan van Eyck’s Ghent altarpiece–we focus on rich sites of intersection between art and music. Final and midterm projects creative and collaborative in nature.
