ARTH 001L. First-Year Seminar: From Handscrolls to Comic Books: Pictorial Narratives in Japan

Through examination of select pictorial narratives produced in Japan between the 12th century and the present, this first-year seminar introduces students to the basics of art historical research and analysis. We will look at the ways in which handscrolls, folding screens, and (comic) books employ image and text in addressing subjects such as romances, miracles, battles, and fantasies, and consider the roles and functions performed by pictorial narratives in society.
