Located in the Art History Resource Room, the Art History Research Group (AHRG), will hold twice monthly meetings in which we will discuss various theories and critiques that have formed the epistemological foundations of art history.
Our research group will engage with topics such as issues of subjectivity vs. objectivity, individual vs. collective identities, kitsch vs. high art, that will arise in selected readings we will read and discuss. In this way, the Art History Research Group will aim at providing a broader understanding of Art History’s role in the production and preservation of culture.
We may also visit exhibitions or other sites with our Art History professors.
Our first meeting will take place this Tuesday, February 6 from 11:30-2:00 in Taché Hall 477. Here we will have a chance to meet each other and organize our next meeting in hopes that all (or most) can attend. We can begin discussing what interests you must and I—with your help—will select the readings accordingly.
Hoping to see all of you!
