HAA 287S: China in Twelve Artworks

Eugene Wang

The seminar is a prelude to the full-fledged Gen Ed course to be offered in the spring. Exclusively drawn from the Harvard Art Museums' collection, the twelve artworks range from a Shang dynasty bronze vessel to early twentieth-century painted fan. The seminar selects, sorts out, and filters relevant background readings, identify key issues embedded in the materials, and researches related works that substantiate the central storyline inherent to the twelve key artworks.
