Attendance (20%): This course is discussion-based and will regularly involve looking at artworks firsthand: attendance and participation are therefore essential. Students may miss two classes unexcused. Habitual lateness will count as an absence.
Participation (20%): Careful preparation of the assigned readings and readiness to engage with your peers in class; submission of seven (7) short written reflections via Moodle, in English or German, on the weekly readings and/or the artworks addressed therein as basis for discussion.
Presentation on site (25%): Each student will present an analysis of a sculpture on site.
Final Paper and PowerPoint (35%): 8-10 pages, accompanied by an annotated selection of images.
The lingua franca of the course is English. Students may produce written assignments in German if they choose.
Regular attendance, active participation, and punctual completion of assignments according to scholarly standards.
All required readings will be made available as PDFs on the online Learning-Platform Moodle. Please bring hard-copies to class.
Additionally, key sources related to many of the sculptures directly under discussion will be available in course reserves in the University Library of the Department of Art History.
