Description

This course examines how artists, poets, moralists, politicians, and philosophers painted, sang about, or legislated private life in early modern China. The paintings, poems, and documents we examine will allow us to peer deeply into the private lives of people speaking as lovers, married couples, or parents. In addition to such private objects as pillows, mirrors, or personal fans, we’ll also look at paintings about private matters intended for viewing in public. To prepare us for this voyeuristic voyage, we will read modern studies of early modern family life in China by historians, sociologists, and anthropologists, as well as primary legal and philosophical arguments written in classical and early modern China. We will also read some primary and secondary materials relating to private life in early modern Europe. Students will acquire a basic understanding of moral, political, and legal issues relevant to the conduct of private life. More important still, students will learn the fundamentals of conducting social historical research using primary materials. No cost for materials. HISTART concentration distributions: 3. Early Modern, C. Asia
