Digital Studies Fellow Chinghsin Wu will be teaching a Digital Humanities course in Spring 2015, Chinese Art: Traditional and Digital Approaches (the course is cross-listed between Fine Arts 50:082:363 and Art History 56:606:609:01). The course introduces students to the arts and architecture of China from ancient through contemporary times, with an emphasis on the impact of digital techniques on this field. The class will investigate and critique various digital resources established in recent years as tools for understanding Chinese art. At the end of the course, the students will use online tools and the facilities of the Digital Studies Center to curate their own virtual exhibition of Chinese art. The course meets Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00 to 12:20.
