Planning for Housing and Green Spaces: Case Studies View details

Planning has the positive potential to create places people want to live in, but often it turns into a blame game: Local Planning Authorities for slow decisions, local people for 'just saying no' to new housing, and developers for building the wrong houses in the wrong places. This course is an opportunity through 'hands-on' case studies (realistic but invented for the purpose of the course) to experience the issues involved from different angles - the local people affected by housing need or loss of valued green spaces; the developer needing to make a profit; the small housing company trying to provide quality housing people need; the Local Planning Authority expected to meet housing targets while protecting what local people value.

Two Artists: Two Paintings View details

Each week students will study in-depth two works of art. The works will be by different artists who may have been contemporaries, possibly rivals, or simply members of a movement. Alternatively they may be separated by hundreds of years. The works themselves may be famous or obscure. They may share common themes or subject matter, compositional approaches, or some external link. Students will have no prior knowledge of the works and will therefore explore the possible connections between the two works and their creators from scratch. They will have access to primary sources, other works by the artists, and critical analysis to help them discuss and formulate ideas. This study in microcosm will enable them to find out about the art world these artists worked in and how their work fits into the broader trend of art history.
