ARTS 103 - The Arts of Asia before 1300 (AH)
Introduces students to the methods of art history through the architecture and sculpture of ancient Asia, from prehistory to the 13th century in places now called Afghanistan, China, Cambodia, India, Iran, Iraq, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. Lectures, discussions, and readings proceed in roughly chronological order, paying special attention to cultural concepts that flow and morph across Asia, such as Buddhism and Hinduism. Student work concentrates on the fundamental skills for more advanced art history courses: close and analytical looking, articulating visual responses through language, and understanding how historical and cultural contexts can shape the ways people make and see art.
