ARTS 2100 - Women and Art

3 hours
This course will focus on the contributions to art made by female artists throughout history. We will consider artists ranging from the Middle Ages through today. We will study figures like Hildegard von Bingen, Artemisia Gentileschi, Judy Chicago, and Marina Abrarnovic, as well as addressing topics like public and private spaces, women’s changing roles, ideals of beauty across time and place, changing ideas regarding gender and sexuality within the context of social class, and the impact of religion on attitudes toward women. We will look at women’s artworks and when possible, their writing. We will also consider a variety of feminist approaches to the study of art and the intersections of theories of race, class, and gender.
