<div><p>This module aims to broaden understandings of 'Art History' in terms of methods, materials, spaces and sites of practice. It explores relationships between visual arts and the public realm by examining contexts within which art, architecture and design are situated and mediated, ranging from consideration of the professional practice of art historians, within and outside academia, to exploring public realms of print media and the built environment. Central to the module is the development of subject specific research skills and practices which build throughout the module towards the dissertation.</p></div>
