ASCL 80.03 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 philosophy and how Confucian ideas shaped the social hierarchy, gender roles, and aesthetic values through exploration of the architecture of royal palaces and aristocratic houses, paintings both sacred and secular, ceramics, textiles and other crafts.  Use of color, symbolic motifs, and stories in the arts and culture will be investigated.  Understanding Korea’s final 500-year dynasty will deepen your comprehension of contemporary Korean culture as it manifests the legacy Joseon Korea.
