By its very nature, art history defies boundaries between different fields of knowledge. Art history classes at UW-Green Bay explore the social and cultural contexts of art and architecture and incorporate not only social, economic and political history, but also gender history and gender politics. We also examine religious belief, human psychology, modes of creativity and issues of ethics, aesthetics and artistic practice.
