(NOT OFFERED IN 2009-2010)
This course will introduce the students to a wide range of theoretical approaches about art, design and contemporary media. The course also reviews representative examples of work - the so-called canons - from various countries and examines their characteristics in conjunction with their stylistic and socio-historical contexts. Through this series of inquiries, students will be introduced to the debates underway in the current literature devoted to visual culture.
Notes: New code. Students who previously took VISC 2B90 or VISC 1B90 may not take this course for further credit.

This class is only available to Alumni and Advanced Standing students for registration and only by permission of the Faculty of Liberal Studies office. This course is the equivalent of taking both LBST 1B06 and LBST 1B03 for prerequisite purposes when registering for Liberal Studies courses at the 200, 300 and 400 level. LBST 1B90 only constitutes 0.5 VISC credit at the 100 level.
