Research Seminars

Each Critical Studies in Art and Culture  student is to complete two research seminars (the specializiation modules), each focusing on – but not limited to – one field of study. You can choose from four specializations altogether: Art, Architecture, Media and Design. Media and the Design offer annually recurring courses: Reading Concepts of Intermediality (taught by Sven Lütticken and Ginette Verstraete) and Methods of Design Analysis (Javier Gimeno Martínez). The art history and architecture staff offer at least one seminar each on  yearly changing topics, based on the current research of staff members, from which the student is free to choose.
