Many things besides art are objects of aesthetic interest. And aesthetic questions arise in contexts far beyond art galleries. This course concentrates on one question of aesthetics beyond art. The content of the course varies according to the research specialties of the teacher, but examples might include the aesthetics of ruins and monuments, environmental aesthetics, the aesthetics of the everyday, and feminist aesthetics.
Instruction is provided through lectures and seminars. The language of instruction is English.
The course is assessed by a home assignment.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method.
