The main research tendencies in the sociology of art are then presented so as to explore the contribution of the sociology of art to the study of the creation and reception of artworks, and also to the interpretation of artworks and to the appreciation of their artistic dimension.
The course then moves in three directions: historiographical (historical contextualisation of sociological theories and studies); epistemological (critical thinking about the transformations of art history through its encounter with sociology); hermeneutic (development of interpretative tools).
