Visual Culture (5 ECTS)

This course deals with a variety of aspects of medieval visual culture: the ‘grammar’ of visual representation; how to ‘read’ medieval images in their written, oral or cultural context; how to search for representations of a specific topic; its historiography (including the ‘minor arts’) and the importance of ‘auxiliary sciences’ such as costume history and heraldry. This course not only aims at participants with an art historical background, but also encourages participation from other fields of study where the study of visual aspects, as an extra carefully studied source, can add new perspectives.
