  • flyer_michael-falser

    Graduate School of Letters invited Professor Michael Falser to give lectures titled “Introduction to (Global) Art History” from Feb 6 to Mar 27, 2017, which is designated to improve English skills by Kyoto University Institute for Liberal Arts and Sciences (ILAS).

    Outline and Purpose of the Course;
    The research field Global Art History is a new one that is being defined by a number of academic institutions worldwide as a response to the challenge posed by global connectivity to existing disciplines. With a certain focus on architecture and the reception process of ‘Asia’, the purpose of the course is to give an introduction to the discipline of art history in general and to the most recent methodological approaches in particular: the epithet ‘global’ is understood here not as an expansive frame to include ‘the world’; rather it draws on a transcultural perspective to question the taxonomies and values that have been built into the discipline of art history since its inception and have been taken as universal.
