The Art History and Visual Culture program of University of Guelph challenges prevailing ideas about cognition and perception, and includes the study of the ocular. Because the visual is crucial to our understandings of cultural difference and historical change, Art History and Visual Culture Studies is vitally concerned with the manner in which the interdependent elements of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class construct identity. It demands that we think across cultures and national boundaries, and within a global context. We train students to undertake primary research, to think deeply about the shaping of visualities, and to explore the critical underpinnings of writing about art and visual culture.
