HIST 262: Visualizing East Asia

(1 Unit)
This course examines how images and image-making processes have profoundly shaped modern East Asian history and culture. It covers the 18th century to the present, including traditional Chinese paintings and Japanese woodblock prints, 19th and 20th century photographs and films, and popular visual media in contemporary East Asia. Local visual representations from China, Japan, Taiwan, and Korea will be looked at alongside images produced by Western groups. The course places strong emphasis on hands-on creative activities and exploration – drawing from cultural and global history, visual theories, and the history of photography. Ho.
