ART2711 Sp Tp:Interect of Art & Culture Japan


The primary goal of this course is to help students understand and experience the link between the culture and art of Japan. Students will receive a grounding in basic background knowledge on Japanese culture and history, and key theories on the inextricability of art and culture, while immersing themselves in Japanese culture and art. They will quickly build their understanding of the art and culture of Japan via direct experience, observations, and reflection, as well as via seminars, lectures, and readings. As their time in Japan progresses, students will move steadily toward a deeper understanding of how fundamental cultural precepts are manifested in the art of the country and finally to examples of ways in which art has shaped or will shape the culture of the country. Students will be expected to link course content, seminar lectures and discussions, and readings to their direct experiences in Japan. Credits: 3.000
