*NEW COURSE* Professor Preeti Chopra will be teaching AH 500/800/ASIAN 630 “India Looks East: Visual & Spatial Cultures of Asia” in Spring 2022 on Mondays, 4:30–7:00pm, in-person. With a focus on modern South Asia, this seminar will also look to the East of India to explore the visual and spatial cultures of Southeast and East Asia. For millennia, these different regions have shared a connected history. However, since European colonial rule, our attention has often turned to the West. This seminar brings South Asia into conversation with Southeast and East Asia, and sometimes to other parts of the world. We will study selected aspects of the religious, visual and material cultures, as well as the architecture and urbanism of these regions. In doing so, we will begin to explore the rich diversity of the visual and spatial cultures of South, Southeast and East Asia. Enroll here.
