This lecture course introduces the student to the major stylistic periods and indigenous traditions of material arts in Europe, North America and Asia. We examine the historical impact of patterns of global trade, developments in technology, and shifts in the gender division of labour on the design, methods and means of production of material arts. Trends in media such as textiles, metalwork, ceramics, architecture and wood will be introduced to emphasize the concept of integrated art movements.
