Boundaries and Border Crossings in East Asian Art
2003–2004 Graduate Student Symposium in East Asian Art
This interdisciplinary symposium was devoted to the broadly conceived theme of “connections” in the arts, architecture, and archaeology of China, Korea, and Japan. Graduate students from Boston University, Berkeley, Chicago, Columbia, Northwestern, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Pittsburgh, Princeton, and Yale presented papers on topics ranging from Chinese archaeology and Buddhism to contemporary art. The papers drew on a number of fields, including religion, ethnic studies, sociology, politics, and economics, that have played an essential role in the development and interaction of artistic traditions in East Asia.
Keynote speaker: Richard M. Barnhart, Yale University, Emeritus
