This seminar will focus in depth on one area of Chinese art history with an emphasis on object research and close visual analysis. Where possible, students will be working directly with objects. Students will prepare a seminar paper focusing on a specific artwork or type of artworks. They will further be encouraged to demonstrate a critical approach to a broad range of methodological and theoretical issues.
