ARTH 62.81 Women, Gender, and Art in East Asia

This course will focus on women as the subjects, the creators, and the patrons of art in China, Korea, and Japan from the 16th century to the present.  It will be organized chronologically, culturally, and thematically.  This will involve an exploration of powerful matrons of art and their aspirations, a historical survey of women artists and their artistic contributions, and an examination of the religious and secular images of women and its limitations.  The course will also look at contemporary artists and investigate their artistic discourses, messages, and experimentations.  Extensive attention will be given to the creation, modification, and persistence of these images throughout history, due to various social, economical, psychological, and intellectual conditions. This course will develop students’ thinking skills in the history of art and improve their ability to conduct research and communicate both orally and in writing within the discipline.

This course requires no previous coursework or experience, but is intended for those who like interdisciplinary approaches to art and culture.
