Seminar in Medieval Art: Viewpoints on Medieval Sculpture

Beatrice Ellen Kitzinger

Back to "Fall 2020" courses

The seminar engages a suite of new books on medieval sculpture that particularly address the relationship of plastic works to their viewers, and the role of sculpture in spaces shaped both by multiple media and by ephemeral performance. We read the latest work in concert with landmark studies in the format of a research workshop: each 4-week unit requires participants to prepare a research agenda, present initial findings, and submit a short paper. Students contribute to the course bibliography. In lieu of a single final paper, participants are encouraged to compile a portfolio of the short critical essays with a general introduction.
