ART HIST 101-6 First-year Seminar: Art & the French Revolution, 1789-1815
This first-year seminar examines the significant roles played by art and architecture in producing French citizens and representing Revolutionary values. In addition to canonical artists and architects of the period, such as Jacques-Louis David, Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, and Étienne-Louis Boullée, this course also examines popular visual and material culture, including political cartoons, festivals, and costumes. Students will learn how to describe and analyze a wide range of cultural objects, and apply those skills to understand how artworks can intervene in revolutionary conditions to shape political and social realities.

ART HIST 389/MENA 301-2-20 Special Topics: Ottoman & Qajar Photography in the Age of Orientalism, 1839-1914
This course traces the impacts of Ottoman and Qajar culture, politics, and social history on photography’s development as a technology of representation in the nineteenth century. By focusing on photography’s entangled history with European colonialism in the Middle East and North Africa, this course highlights Orientalism as both a source of inspiration and a site of contestation for Ottoman and Qajar photographers (and their subjects). The course examines a wide range of photographic genres, including royal portraiture, studio photography, ethnographic photography, and archaeological photography, as well as the many fascinating processes and materials of nineteenth-century photography, from the daguerreotype to photolithography.
