Section Information for Fall 2019

The Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, and Angkor Wat, such monuments stir up connotations and images that often have more to do with fantasy than fact. How were these monuments first made? What caused them to rise in the popular imagination as symbols of both national identity and cultural otherness? This course will explore the histories of several well-known Asian monuments in order to explore both their origins and the factors behind their rise as cultural icons. This seminar-style course will be offered as ARTH 482 and 599. Taking the course on the graduate level will require more work but all students will be expected to fully participate in discussions. Coursework will consist mainly of writing assignments and in-class presentations
