What a unique and interesting class!! I'm extremely happy that I took this class. Would highly recommend it!
It is an great course with an amazing content!
The only problem is that sometimes it gets extremely monotonous =/
Very interesting course. Gives you insights on how gender played an important role in the arts. Also how to differentiate and read work on sexuality and gender.
Good course. Coming from a traditional art historical context/content. Which is still a very valuable methodology in this age of "Visual Culture"! Thank you.
