Professor Jeanette Hoorn's MOOC 'Sexing the Canvas - Art and Gender' starts
Professor Jeanette Hoorn's Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) 'Sexing the Canvas - Art and Gender' starts on October 26th 2015. Join now!
The Sexing the Canvas - Art and Gender course has been put together with the expert assistance of Dr Caroline Wallace, a graduate from our School. Dr KO Chong Gossard from Classical Studies, Professor Jennifer Milam in Art History at Sydney and NGV curators Judith Ryan, Dr Ted Gott and Assistant-Director Dr Isobel Crombie, who are all graduates of Art History at The University of Melbourne, have given expert lectures for units that make up the course.
Professor Barbara Creed has made a fantastic contribution to the units shot at MoMA on Frida Kahlo and Henri Rousseau. It has been an extraordinary journey and Professor Hoorn hopes to be in a position to speak about the design and eventually the first outing of the MOOC, in the School soon.
Professor Hoorn would be delighted if as many people as possible in the School took the subject. The unit demonstrates, she believes, the possibilities for teaching the humanities on-line, something we will all be doing more of very soon. Feedback is most welcome.
