ARTS 246 - From Emperors to Anime: Pictorial Practices in China and Japan (AH)
A focus on East Asia’s pictorial arts–especially paintings and prints, but also film and new media–from prehistoric times through the 21st century. This chronological survey begins with China, switches to Japan after the mid-term break, and spends the last few classes comparing these regions and taking a longer view of each. Student work focuses upon close analysis of visual materials and scholarly essays, and on the challenges of integrating visual and verbal information.
