Course Content

The last couple of decades witnessed a proliferation of methodologies for the analysis of visual and spatial phenomena. The Common point of these new strategies-coming from fields as diverse as psychoanalysis, philosophy and feminism among others – is concentration on singular cases and denigration of any systematic approach aiming to develop general explicative frameworks. In this seminar we will try to develop ways of analyzing visual and spatial practices through close-readings of different texts including canonical works of art and architectural history and recent products of interdisciplinary approaches.
