[Fool’s Cap Map of the World]. Bodleian Library, University of Oxford

We are all accustomed to illustrated lectures for art history, so why not those in other subjects?

This webinar proposes both an image-rich experience across disciplines and a more holistic and integrated view of teaching with images overall–even for art history. For example, history may be accessed through portraits of outstanding figures and entire eras or events can be characterized using a single representative or metaphorical image. Vice versa, art history can be studied “horizontally,” cross-culturally through an era, rather than as siloed by school or nationality.

In this webinar we will discuss the many subjects that invite fuller illustration, including the social sciences, environment and climate change, human geography and immigration, and the history of science and medicine, to name just a few. We will also see how the methods of studying these subjects can be applied to art history.

Join us to find out about approaches for your discipline, to ask questions, and for a lavishly illustrated paean to pictures!

This webinar is scheduled for Thursday, October 5, 3:00 PM ET. Sign up now!
