ARTH 328 - New Ghosts Old Dreams: The Art of Post-Imperial China

FC ARHU
4 credits
During the 20th century, China struggled frequently with internal and external forces in its attempt to reconcile its political authority and its position in the post-imperial world. This seminar considers the various phases in which China refashioned its artistic identity in light of compelling social forces. Underlying themes include the lingering burden of traditional China and the dilemma of Westernization. Both official trends and unofficial counter-currents will be explored as responses to the confrontation of the West. Consent of instructor required.
Prerequisites & Notes: At least one 200-Level Art History course
