Gothic Architecture

Alexander Kane Harper

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

This course examines Gothic architecture in late medieval Europe (ca. 1140-1500), examining the term as a stylistic, chronological, and methodological designator for buildings. In addition to analyzing the historiography of Gothic architecture, including an examination of neo-Gothic architecture on campus, topics will include the construction, economics, and social/political contexts of Gothic church and domestic construction. A truly European phenomenon, this course will examine the origins of Gothic architecture in and around Paris as well as its reception in the British Isles, the Mediterranean, and Central and Northern Europe.
