ARTH 405 - Topics in Visual and Legal Culture

3 Credit Hours
Introduction to laws that govern creation, circulation, and criminalization of certain artworks. Highlights the often surprising ways in which images, objects, and laws knit together to create a form of social connective tissue – a finely grained network that simultaneously reflects and shapes its particular historical moment. Drawing on the methodologies of both art history and legal history, this course will challenge students to think critically about the visual arts, the legal system, and, ultimately, our cultural understanding of creativity itself.
