Α1 History of Art  
Introductory overview of Western art history from ancient times to the present. Various instructors 
 
Α2  History of Greek Art
Dimitrios Damaskos, University of Patras
The course provides a survey of Ancient Greek art from the 10th through the 1st century BC – the time, that is, when Ancient Greek civilisation took shape and developed in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Those centuries produced art of the highest quality, centred on man and his various activities in the public and private sphere of the society in which he lived. Age by age and gradually, Ancient Greek art gave expression to ideals and values reflecting not only the different polities (aristocratic, tyrannical, democratic, monarchical) but also man’s relation with the (equally anthropocentric) gods he worshipped. Each age will be studied in terms of the basic categories of Ancient Greek art (architecture, sculpture, painting, vasepainting and the minor arts). The survey will conclude with the convergence of the Ancient Greek and Roman cultures and the emergence of Greco-Roman civilisation. 
 
Α3  Art History of Medieval Europe
Kallirroe Linardou
The aim of this introductory course is to survey the developments in European Art from the 4th to the 14th century. The lectures are divided between the arts of Late Antiquity, Byzantium and the Medieval West with an emphasis on monumental painting, sculpture and the minor arts.  
 
Α4  History of Aesthetic Theories I
Panagiotis Poulos
This first series of introductory lectures examines the development of philosophical issues from the point of view of the history of aesthetic theories: Ancient world, Medieval era, Renaissance, Early Modern period, Enlightenment and the first half of the Nineteenth Century. A number of arguments, drawn from the work of Plato, Aristotle, of the Hellenistic Schools, of Late Antiquity, of Late Byzantine and Western Christendom, of Renaissance philosophers, scholars and artists, as well as the work of philosophers related to the modern traditions of rationalism, empiricism, criticism, idealism and romanticism, are critically presented. This kind of history, interwoven with the history of the various philosophical movements and their cultural, artistic and scientific contexts, attempts to identify the parameters that determine the concepts of art and of artistic activity, as well as their impact in life and thought. 
 
Α5 Modern European History  
Ada Dialla
The aim of this course is to present the main economic, social, political and cultural dimensions experienced by the European peoples in the nineteenth century. The aim is not to present the distinct histories of each country in the European continent but to present the totality of developments that were of importance for the formation of the contemporary world so that the students can understand the significance of transnational processes, the internal variations and the interaction between European societies and the common as well as the different European experiences. The course is thematic based on key concepts, such as mass movements, revolutions, ideological trends, nation-state, empire, parliamentary systems, state coalitions while keeping in mind the chronological sequence of the phenomena in question.
