May be repeated when topic is different.

Topic for Spring 2022: Modern Ruins in East Asia
In examining modern catastrophes: acts of war, iconoclasm, natural and man-made disasters, this seminar will focus on how sites of modern ruination have been both documented and aestheticized. Individual case studies will include the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake, wartime reportage, the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, protest imagery, the demotion of colonial architecture, and environmental art. Coursework will include written assignments and a research paper.
