Seminar: Chinese Art and Aesthetics in transcultural perspectives

Zhejiang University, Chinese Studies Master Program
Winter semester 2013/2014
Seminar: Chinese Art and Aesthetics in transcultural perspectives
Dr. Volker Heubel (何心鹏)

The course is conceived as an introduction into the field of Chinese art and aesthetics, which tries to give basic insights into the field from a contemporary and transcultural perspective. It will do this by focusing on two arts: the art of writing and the art of tea, which formed an important part of traditional literati culture.  We will - in an exemplary way - look at their contemporary forms, examine how they relate to their tradition and further ask how certain traditions could  function as resources for possible developments in the future .
