This seminar will examine the way European culture, especially art, was shaped by the rise of the monetary economy and capitalism, beginning in the late Middle Ages and continuing into modern times. Faculty will meet separately on a bi-weekly basis with graduate students in the class who will also be assigned extra readings. Graduate work will be evaluated on a more challenging scale, with particular attention to methodological and interpretive rigor.
