Art history short courses, lectures and tours

Summer School 2018

2018 PROGRAMME

The Summer School welcomes everyone over the age of 18.  We regret that child protection legislation prevents us from including participants under the age of 18 in Summer School.  No previous art historical training is necessary.

Each course is entirely free-standing, but we have balanced the programme in such a way that you may pursue a particular period or subject over two or more weeks.

In 2018 the dates are:

9 – 13 April

2 – 6 July

9 – 13 July

 

PROGRAMME AND COURSES

The programme offers 24 courses, each of which runs for a week from Monday to Friday.  Classes are held in The Courtauld Institute of Art seminar and teaching rooms, in the lecture theatre and in front of works of art in museum and gallery collections and at sites in London and beyond.

The courses focus intensively on a range of topics that examine broad themes from medieval to contemporary art, combined with the close study of individual objects.  They involve lectures, visits to galleries, museums and other buildings, sometimes with privileged access to collections.  No written work is set although there is suggested pre-course reading.  The classes offer plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions and aim to be both scholarly and enjoyable.

For further details on the organisation of Summer School – including such aspects as access, language requirements, booking, lecturers, class sizes and much more – please see ‘General Information’

 

The Spring Courses, Summer School, and Study Tours have been programmed by Dr Anne Puetz. If you require further information on the content and scope of these programmes, please contact Anne by email [anne.puetz@courtauld.ac.uk].
