Cultural Intersections in the History of Art I



This module, led by Dr Rachel Moss, presents a thematic overview of the global intersections and relationships of Western visual and material culture across a range of historically located examples. Topics are explored in this module under the broad themes of knowledge and discovery and empire building. Through these lenses lectures will explore topics as diverse as the Wunderkammer, Islamic Iberia and the space race and what they reveal about cultural transmission through the ages.

Rachel is an art and architectural historian with a particular interest in medieval Ireland. Her research has developed from doctoral studies in Romanesque architecture and sculpture to focus on the later medieval period, in particular the social context of medieval art and architecture.
