3DTD309 History of Adornment 3 cr.


This lecture-based course is designed to provide a deeper understanding of the jewelry traditions in non-western as well as western cultures. Topics are thematically organized and examine historic and contemporary contexts through slide lectures. The lectures are complemented by a library tour, fieldtrips, visits to local museum collections and current gallery exhibitions and visiting artist lectures (which are organized by the Jewelry and Metalsmithing Area). Ongoing class discussions focus on related topics and assigned reading material. Part of the class is geared towards strengthening presentation as well as research skills through specific assignments.
