HA 320 — Animals, Architecture, and Aesthetics

3 credits; 3 lecture and 0 lab hours

Students study the myriad ways animals create structures for living and expression from an art historical perspective. Considering the construction and sustainability of nests, hives, dams, and burrows, we will ask “do animals make architecture?”. The aesthetic sensibility of animals will be discussed in relation to ontology and ethics. (G6: The Arts; G7: Humanities).
