While predominantly known as a professor at Columbia University, Schapiro also taught courses at the New School for Social Research, New York University, and other institutions. This subseries groups these course materials and is further arranged by institution.


Sub-Subseries: III.2.1: Columbia University, 1929-1977

Schapiro's role as a faculty member at Columbia University went uninterrupted from 1928 until 1978, a full 50 years of academic service. Schapiro began his formal teaching at Columbia beginning in 1928, when he became a "Lecturer" in the Fine Arts department, where art history courses were taught in the same department as those focused on the practice of fine arts. An independent art history department would not be established until 1961.Four years later, in 1965, Schapiro was appointed University Professor, the second such honor bestowed to a faculty member at Columbia at the time. In 1973, Schapiro become University Professor Emeritus at Columbia and would continue to teach until 1978.

The records in this sub-subseries contain material to classes Schapiro taught at Columbia throughout his career at the university. They include typescripts, notes, slide lists, and transcripts of his lectures.

The sub-subseries is organized chronologically beginning in 1929, the year in which records first appear in the collection. Schapiro titled his classes differently then they appear in official class bulletins. To maintain consistency, all class titles conform to official titles retrieved from department class bulletins published by Columbia University and housed at the University Archives at the Rare Book & Manuscript Library.

Several of these courses have been recorded and are housed in Series VII: Sound and video recording, Subseries: VII.2: Audiocassettes and audiotapes. Those courses that have been recorded will be indicated as such after the course title in this sub-subseries. Additionally, these courses are also cross-referenced in Series VII, Subseries: VII.2.

Subseries: III.3: Lectures, 1930s-1980s

Outside of his formal academic teaching, Schapiro was a prominent international lecturer in art history and other related disciplines. Materials in this subseries reflect his formal participation in a variety of academic and non-academic settings as a professional lecturer, visiting scholar, or visiting fellow. This includes material from Schapiro's 1967 Charles Eliot Norton lectures at Harvard University and his 1968 lecture on Abstract art from the Slade Lectures in the Fine Arts at Oxford University. Other prominent lectures include "The unity of Picasso's art" delivered at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in 1973 and the lecture "An experiment in the coherence of forms" given at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in the 1970s.

Several of these lectures have been recorded and are housed in Series VII: Sound and video recording, Subseries: VII.2: Audiocassettes and audiotapes. Those lectures that have been recorded will be indicated as such after the lecture title in this sub-subseries. Additionally, these lectures are also cross-referenced in Series VII, Subseries: VII.2.

To facilitate discovery and retrieval, this subseries is divided chronologically by decade as follows: Sub-Subseries: III.3.1: 1930s, Sub-Subseries: III.3.2: 1940s, Sub-Subseries: III.3.3: 1950s, Sub-Subseries: III.3.4: 1960s, Sub-Subseries: III.3.5: 1970s, Sub-Subseries: III.3.6: 1980s.
