Learning Outcomes
The aim is to instruct students and train them to teach History of Art in the Secondary Education (SE) practising stages into the production of a short scholarly text familiarizing them with the requirements towards it. The subject of the individual tasks is accessible, which ensures that they are in direct contact to the work of art or design that they study. The narrative part is relevant to their choice of subject. It aims at training them to view Greek and foreign artistic creation in their relation and discerning cultural differences between local and international identities in art forms.

Course Content (Syllabus)
Greek and international avant-garde movements: points of accord and discord Each session of the seminar consists of two parts, the narrative and that of practice. In the former, the seminar investigates the reception of international avant-garde art movements (painting, sculpture, architecture) evident in the forms of 19th and 20th century Greek art. Focused on the differentiations (stylistic, thematic or theoretical) that Greek artists maintain in this reception, two issues are discussed: a. the formation in terms of a regional, national identity of an international, cosmopolitan paradigm such as avant-garde art up to the first post-war decades. b. the transformation of its character in the era of globalization as merely a classification non-sequitur or a ramification of the global that persists in a national identity. In the latter participants are trained towards producing a short scholarly text by stages. Those consist of choice of subject, definition, collecting material, library and archive research, photographic and bibliographical documentation, presentation in session, composition and authoring of the text. Subjects are chosen with regard to their accessibility and relevance to the narrative part. They comprise works of painting and sculpture in museums and galleries as well as buildings and public spaces of architectural interest, thus ensuring that participants can be in direct contact with the subject of their study.
