Research involves applying critical analyses to various qualitative data, including interviews, observations from memories, and fieldnotes. Drawing from such sources in this course, students will compose ethnographic research that frames, conceptualizes, interprets, and critiques the social aspects of their lives with the lives of our informants. The critical aspect will situate inquiries within broader projects of service learning and social analysis, including theories of narratives, languages, citizenship, education, and inequality. Students will design their own ethnographic research digital archive that documents community fieldwork. All students will complete twenty hours of community service.

Art 390: Art In Context: de’Medici to Modern, taught by Professor Shaun Bangert
Art 290: The Florentine Renaissance: Quattrocento to Cinquecento, taught by Professor Michelle Randall.

Professor Bangert’s course will examine approaches and techniques developed and employed by artists practicing in Italy during the Renaissance that contributed to advances of the patron/artist relationship and the expansion of the “art” of cartography and representation of place. During the program, participants will visit museums, churches, and structures that house examples of innovative ways of viewing and documenting one’s surroundings or creating persuasive messages intended to excite, entice, and educate their audience. Projects will expand on these ideas by applying contemporary software and techniques specific to graphic design and their application to communication arts, mapping and the representation of personal, celestial, community, and urban spaces.

Professor Randall’s program will analyze the development of the Renaissance style through the study of the painting, sculpture, and architecture of Florence. She will focus on individual works of art and the characteristics of period styles (Medieval, Early through High Renaissance, Mannerist). Unlike other courses taught on campus, the classroom will consist of visits to museums, villas, monasteries, churches, chapels, and palaces and other monuments. This course is intensive, and requires walking to and from most sites.
