Buddhist Art and Architecture in East Asia
ARHA 284
Spring 2019 not offered
Crosslisting: CEAS 284

This course surveys the art and architecture of East Asia, emphasizing the unifying Buddhist tradition. As Buddhism spread through East Asia, it was influenced and shaped by native creeds-Confucianism and Daoism in China, Shamanism in Korea, and kami-worship (Shinto) in Japan. These interactions will be explored through works of art and architecture, as we examine issues of continuity and diversity.
