Feedback

“An interesting course which gave us the opportunity to discuss with classmates and teacher. I really like the learning atmosphere.”

“I came to learn the names of many art history scholars and their research areas – these are things I never knew before… I thank the 40% participation rule. Really intimidating at first, but… Sometimes we just need a little push, I think. I now feel more comfortable when speaking in all of my classes.”

“The course is well-organised. By looking at the different approaches and methodologies scholars have been using, I got a better picture about the discourse of Chinese art history. The course is meaningful as a final year programme.”

“The course is systematic and organised. I like the presentation part most as by reading my peer’s work I got a precious chance to learn and reflect .”

“I can learn more about the theoretical practice in art history which I have rarely came across before.”
