ARTH 82.01 Arts and Culture of Korea’s Last Dynasty

This course provides an introduction to the arts and culture of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910), which was founded on Confucianism. We will examine Confucian phisophy and how Confucian ideas shaped the social hierarchy, gender roles, and aesthetic values through exploration of the architecture of royal palaces and aristocratic houses, paintngs both sacred and secular, ceramics, textiles and other crafts. Use of colors, symbolic motifs, and stories in the arts and cultures will be investigated. Understanding Korea’s final 500-year dynasty will deepen students’ comprehension of contemporary Korean culture as it manifests the legacy of Joseon Korea.

No previous knowledge of Korean art, language, and history is required.
