We will analyse the character of the other regional kingdoms across India by the same period, including the emergence of Hoysala empire of the southern Deccan, the Kakatiya dynasty and the continuation and eventual decline of the Chalukya dynasties. We will also go on to look at the continuation, expansion and final decline of the Chola of the Tamil south, looking in detail at their administration and reasons for their extended prosperity. We will also consequently consider why no dynasty was able to create a single hegemony across the subcontinent, before making some detailed assessment of the emergence and importance of the Sultanate of Delhi and the subsequent later evolution of Hinduism, temple patronage as well as a sustained cultural Indian influence across the wider region of south-east Asia.

Art History: 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.
