Description: In this course, we will study how various artistic styles developed in historical, social and cultural contexts from the ancient period to the present day. Through the careful examination of architecture, calligraphy, painting, sculpture, ceramics, bronze, and film, students will gain a deeper understanding of Chinese art and visual culture. For each class meeting, graduate students will be assigned additional readings. They will write an annotated bibliography of all the readings to be turned in at the end of the semester. We will meet for an additional two or three times to discuss the interpretive and methodological problems and ideas associated with the readings. Graduate students will be expected to complete all requirements of the class in addition to writing a substantial research paper due at the end of the semester. Cross-list: HART 372, ASIA 372, MDEM 373. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for HART 572 if student has credit for HART 372.
