Conference

Courts & Capitals
1815-1914: From Alexandria to Tokyo
In Asia as in Europe, the nineteenth century witnesed a renaissance of court culture and architecture. The challenges of revolution, nationalism and capitalism stimulated the creation of palaces, monuments and grand public spaces on an unprecedented scale, transforming the urban landscape and placing ruling dynasties at the heart of modern capital cities. Focusing on the Near and Far East, this conference explores the influence of court patronage in refashioning some of the world's greatest cities.

Course

Arts of Asia and their Markets
This course explores in survey fashion the artistic products of the leading religions and philosophies of Asia, from Islam, Hinduism, Jainism and early Buddhism in India, Southeast Asia and the Islamic World, to Daoism, Confucianism, Shinto and Mahayana Buddhism in China, Korea and Japan.

Focusing on sculptural and architectural work, the course offers students introductory yet intensive object-based study. It also provides associated contextual learning, investigating themes such as court life of the Indian and Persian sultanates and the Mughals; civil and military East Asian court life; and the European opening-up of trade with China and Japan from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. 

The course concludes with a review of contemporary art and its markets in India, Iran, Southeast Asia, China and Japan. 

This course can be taken as a prelude to the MA in East Asian Art, but it is also an ideal introduction to the subject of Asian art in its own right.
