The Research Project (throughout the semester)
The research project will be a group project for which you will research a current Wikipedia entry on a subject relevant to our class with the objective to update and improve it. Much of this project is about process, as you and your group members will be required to complete the Wikiedu training modules on a weekly basis as you work toward completing the research, writing, and editing of your entry. Many more details to come during the second week of the semester.

European Art and the Wider World 1350-1550 by
Publication Date: 2018-07-01
European art and the wider world 1350-1550 considers select examples of European art and material culture through the lens of global connections. Through close examination of a wide array of objects such as altarpieces, ceramics and featherwork, it explores European visual culture during the 'age of exploration'. It considers the reception in Europe of objects from Asia, America and Africa and examines works of art as an insight into cultural encounter and conflict in a wide variety of contexts, including Venice, Al-Andalus and Goa. The book is animated by art-historical approaches that have recently transformed the study of the art of this era. It re-casts works that have long featured in a history of a quintessentially Western 'Renaissance' in the light of travel, trade and cultural encounters, and broadens the traditional focus of interest to include material culture.
