Propose a course using the Cleveland Museum of Art collection as course material

The Joint Program of the Case Western Reserve University Department of Art History and Art and the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) is soliciting applications for a specially funded Mellon graduate seminar course for the 2022-23 academic year. The course will be a cross-disciplinary, object-based seminar that prioritizes the CMA collection as primary course material. 

The call is open to all CWRU faculty, including adjunct faculty from the CMA. The goal of the Mellon-funded course is to encourage students to understand the importance of art beyond the scope traditionally considered in art history. The Joint Program seeks applicants with non-traditional points of view to provide students with a critical perspective for humanities leaders of the future.
