AMES 21.11 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.
