Synthesizing Practices: Art History's Applications Outside the Classroom

Laura Todd. "Synthesizing Practices: Art History's Applications Outside the Classroom." MA Practicum Project, University of Washington, 2020.

Synthesizing Practices is a practicum project that examines how students and alumni use art history beyond the classroom. Through a series of video interviews, the project investigates how students who participate in art history classes learn to prioritize visual observations; critically analyze issues; research, write, and present ideas; and contextualize information within a historical framework. Synthesizing Practices documents student experience but also — through the subjective process of video editing — builds new narratives around the role that art history plays in our educational, professional, and creative lives.
