Chronologically oriented lectures have been, for many years, the traditional method used to teach architecture and design history. However, this method has certain limitations for students who need to learn about specific themes in architecture. Christopher S. Wilson, professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design at Izmir University of Economics in Turkey, proposes a thematic approach that enables students to compare and understand artistic perspectives and movements throughout different historical periods. In this presentation, Wilson describes the lecture-based art history and design course he teaches.
