Course Overview Through a study of the history, statues, paintings, buildings, and other arts and material culture of Japan, 6th through 18th century, course participants will acquire and develop practical specialist knowledge and skills needed for further research in premodern and early modern Japanese art and cultural history.

Sessions will introduce important cultural moments and monuments that have come to define Japan and critique the historiography of their reception. It will introduce examples of paintings, statues, gardens, temples, shrines, and issues relating to culture and artistic production, with the goal of providing a window as to why art and culture are produced and how they have functioned throughout Japanese history.

Lectures will discuss works and sites in detail, contextualizing not only the works in history but also the scholarship on the study of Japanese art, architecture, and visual culture broadly through consideration of the historiography and East Asian and Indian arts.

Textbooks : Penelope Mason E., and Donald Dinwiddie. History of Japanese Art (Second edition, Prentice Hall, 2004). Be sure to purchase the second edition, not the first. This text is available for purchase online. PDFs of all chapters are also on the kenkyūshitsu computer. There is also one copy in the kenkyūshitsu library. I strongly recommend that you purchase the book. At the very least, spend time in the library with the book and look at the many books in the KKS library and the Joan bunkō related to key works. Many are copiously illustrated art compendia.
