IAS 3132 - Introduction To Comparative Arts

Description
Intro to Comparative Arts is an interdisciplinary, multimedia course designed to introduce students to the study not of the literatures of various languages, cultures, and historical periods, but rather of the relationship among the arts in a given period. In Fall 2019, we will address art connections in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, as well as in the 19th century to the present, examining how one form illuminates another or perhaps changes its message. We will often make comparative studies of the arts through the lens of music: how composers can offer renditions (vocal or instrumental) of a subject that was first treated in text or painting. In addition, we will read literary works featuring other art forms (a painting or performance within a text); consider theories of representation and expression; and learn about the rise of cultural institutions such as the library, the museum, and the public concert hall and their relationship to the public. In their written work, students will venture beyond the course material, alternately assuming the roles of artist, critic, and consumer. Students will be required to attend performances and exhibits. Among the authors, composers, and artists studied are: the trouvères, Petrarch, Goethe, Heine, Mallarmé, Huysman, Wilde, Pamuk, Schubert, Liszt, Richard Strauss, Kaulbach, and Moreau. Ability to read music is not required. Cross-listed with Music.
