Overview

The History, Theory and Criticism of Architecture and Art program aims to produce leading-edge scholars and intellectuals in the field of art and architectural history. We place a strong emphasis on historiography and analytical methodologies. Course offerings deal with the social and physical context of the built environment, the significant issues in current disciplinary thinking, as well as with the philosophical, political, and material context for works of art and architecture.
Our faculty members explore the development of salient attitudes regarding art and architectural works, and produce interdisciplinary tools for probing the wider significance of such shifts over time. The HTC Forum Lecture Series, the Aga Khan Lecture Series, Thresholds (the departmental journal), and the Research in Progress Symposium are just some of the activities that are organized by us for the enrichment of all.
