HA408A: FIELDWORK 2 (2020-2021)

Last modified: 18 Aug 2020 12:20

Course Overview

In Fieldwork 2, you will continue your study of works of art and architecture in situ and/or online. If feasible, you will endeavour to undertake some independent or small group visits although these will be subject to your location, and the extent of the easing of Coronavirus restrictions. You will complete your Flogs with reflections on any summer activities, real-world or virtual, and begin selecting material for your Fieldwork ePortfolio. Although the Flogs will be included, the rest of the ePortfolio will be written in an academic style and offer you the opportunity to reflect on how your thoughts and ideas as an art historian have developed throughout the course.

Course Description

Fieldwork 2 continues the study of works of art and architecture in situ. A core element of the second part of this course will be to undertake planned visits, which could be online and/or in situ, subject to your location and the easing of Coronavirus restrictions. Your Level 3 Flogs will be completed with your reflections on any real-world and/or virtual summer activities and will be part of your compilation and submission of an ePortfolio, which forms the summative assignment of the course. Written in an academic style, it will include selected reflections, reviews and analyses of works seen online and/or in situ, and public lectures attended during the Fieldwork course.
