When Offered: On Demand
GEN ED: Junior Writing in the Discipline (WID)
Students will examine and engage with methodologies of visual culture studies, as well as the history and practices of contemporary visual culture in Asia. In analyzing contemporary Asia the course covers visual culture practices from the nineteenth century to the present.  We will study art, photography, architecture, urbanism, museums and festivals, literature, film, and television in order to examine the characteristics of the shared lexicon and imaginary that produce distinctive contemporary viewing practices that we may call “Asian.” Students will also learn to write and perform research in art history at an advanced level.
Prerequisites: sophomore standing or consent of the instructor; and RC 2001   or its equivalent.
