    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Presentation of art history content based on clothing and fashion (which is reflective of its contemporaneity).

    The classes are theoretical and based on the analysis of images/documentaries from the History of Art whose selection criteria are: reference artists at the time, history under study and the figuration of clothing in the scenes represented and textiles in the scenarios. The characterization of the time is also done with films/documentaries, exhibitions, etc. In classes, the subject can sometimes make thematic leaps to contextualize an idea, information associated with the thematic contents of the UC in question.
