Welcome AH 210

Welcome to the Course Guide for AH 210

My name is Lisa Thornell and I'm a librarian who will be helping you begin your research project in class today. You can use this guide as a starting point for your research in our library research session and for the remainder of the semester.

Feel free to stop by the Library Services and Information Desk for research or citation assistance. I'm also happy to meet with you one-on-one for a research appointment. Please be sure to email me at least 24 hours in advance of the time that you would like to meet. lthornell@fairfield.edu

Assignment

Taken from the AH 210 Course Syllabus

Research Project: this project provides each student with the opportunity to interweave areas of study and interest within and beyond art history.  Each project must have a link to some aspect of Myth in Classical Art, but the topic can expand beyond it, for example, Mythological battles as a visual means of defining and commemorating war, post-Antiquity use of and response to myth, 20th and 21st century artists who explore myth from Classical Art, myths as a means of story-telling, myths as a means of transcending time and cultures, myth to perpetuate a city’s image and reputation through its coinage. The point of the project is for each student to deepen his/her area(s) of interest and academic pursuit and to approach the topic with creative thinking.
