This will involve a historical survey of women artists and their artistic contributions, as well as an examination of the religious, mythological and secular images of women in art. Extensive attention will be given to the creation, modification and persistence of these images throughout history, due to various social, economical, psychological and intellectual conditions. This course will teach students how to write and do research in the history of art, continuing the work begun in WRIT II courses and building upon the skills learned there. This course will develop students’ thinking skills in the history of art and improve their ability to communicate within the discipline.
