Description
ANCIENT EAST ASIAN VISUAL TRADITIONS
This course is designed to look at early cultures of East Asia through the study of material culture. It is arranged in chronological order, beginning with the Paleolithic and including the Neolithic, through the formation of states and empires in china, Korea and Japan. We will consider the artifacts as cultural documents and learn how to explain why they look the way they do based on an understanding of their patron's input, their function, use and time of manufacture.
