Selected topics in art history with written and oral reports. May be repeated for degree credit if the topics are different.

Winter 2018, ARTH 295A-01: History of Islamic Art & Architecture (3). An introductory survey to the art and architecture of the Islamic world, from the founding of Islam in the 7th century to the present day. The course concentrates on selected moments and monuments in the central historic regions—the Middle East, North Africa, Spain, Iraq, Iran, Central Asia, India, Turkey—and considers the relationship of the visual arts to the history, geography, and traditions of each region. The class includes a trip to the Freer and Sackler Galleries of the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. (HA) Gustafson.

Winter 2018, ARTH 295B-01: History of Western Architecture (3). This survey of Western architecture, which includes material from the ancient world to the 20th century, is structured chronologically with lectures addressing the major traditions of architectural visual culture and practice. Central to this course is an investigation of the ways in which architecture has been designed to frame the significant socio-religious and political contexts of historical cultures. (HA) Gustafson.
