ART 3805 - Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Metropolitan Studies

(CA-AAP, LA-AAP)      
Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Counts as modern art history for B.F.A. students. Offered in New York City.


This course introduces students to the key concepts in art and urbanism in the 19th-21st centuries, ranging from politics to social changes, technology to representation, as major factors and issues that have been influencing in the past and still continue to shape a contemporary Metropolis. Focusing on representation of the city in different media and multi-disciplinary approach to urban theory, with New York as a case study, the class will be structured around several field trips, weekly lectures followed by film excerpts screenings, individual student presentations, and discussions of the assigned readings.
