Description: This course will explore issues surrounding sex and money in medieval and early modern Europe and their impact on visual representations of both humans and non-humans. It will introduce students to such theories as feminism, Marxism, and posthumanism as well as medieval beliefs about the Seven Deadly Sins. Some course meetings will take place at Houston-area museums where students will engage with artworks in person. Graduate students will work on a more advanced level than undergraduate students with higher expectations and additional readings. Graduate students will be expected to complete all requirements of the class and will meet an additional seven times to discuss the interpretive and methodological ideas associated with the readings and their research papers.
