Undergraduate Catalog 2014-2015 [Archived Catalog] [Archived Catalog]
THIS COURSE IS OFFERED RESIDENTIALLY ONLY
This course is an introduction to the arts of China, Japan, Korea and the Pacific rim, focusing on the religious and political influences, as well as the evolution of landscape and figure painting traditions. This course considers objects in their context (from the archaeological sites from which they were unearthed to the material culture that surrounded them) to reconstruct the functions and the meanings of objects, and to better understand cultures through the objects they produced.
