Objects, Museums, and Meanings

This Burch Field Research Seminar is a three-week, London-based program that will meet daily in museums, with special attention to the British Museum, the National Gallery, and the Courtauld Gallery. Learn how to "read" objects and critically consider what works of art communicate on their own, and how decisions regarding their collection and display shape how we understand them. Through close examination of its museums, students also will learn about London itself: its collections speak simultaneously to a global heritage and a uniquely English legacy.
