The whys of where: an East Asian art history of imaginative geographies

Lecturer: Angie BAECKER

6 credits

This course will examine the relationship between image-making and cultural encounters at regional and trans-national levels, and the role of visual artefacts in the making of real and imaginative geographies. The module is not designed to provide a comprehensive overview of East Asian art, but to encourage discussions and debates about how structures of knowledge including images were used to form cultural identities and geographies. In each instance, connections, commonalities, and differences are examined as patterns within East Asia.
