ARTH 600 (CRN 3400) Advanced Professional Seminar (3 credits) Prof. Angela Vanhaelen, W, 1135-1425, Arts W-220

This advanced pro-seminar introduces key concepts and practices of art history through guided discussions of issues, ideas, and trends central to the current practice of the discipline and its historical formation. Most class sessions will be led by a different McGill faculty member from AHCS and associated institutes. Providing orientation to the field and to the department, this course also emphasizes key skills and issues of professionalization. One week will be dedicated to the essential art of grant writing, preparing you for specific funding applications. As the semester progresses, we will also discuss career opportunities, conference participation, publication strategies, and essential resources for success in the field.
