Global Perspectives in Art History

Let’s begin a new teaching year where our worldwide experience of the pandemic makes globalization even more relevant, with an initiative that presents a global view of art history. The goal for this session is to explore and illustrate an inclusive view of art history consistent with the growing trend in the discipline – art across cultures, rather than the traditional focus on isolated geographies.
