Venice

"Imagining Venice"
Art/Comm 285

Course description: Students will acquire a background knowledge of Venetian history, geography, demography, culture, and politics with special attention to how Venice has operated as a significant symbol - of an untouchable republic, of a militant mercantile nation, of a corrupt political system, of a decadently sexual culture, and of a dying empire - within various cultural media and artifacts of the Western world.
