Description: Lecture, three hours; discussion, one hour. Designed for juniors/seniors. Lectures and readings in English. Humanities have recently passed through so-called visual turn: traditional emphases on language(s) in field have been reconsidered in light of society's increasingly visual workings. New attitude toward our own changing culture (i.e., toward its future) has equal value if applied retrospectively to multiple cultures of one erstwhile empire. In territory where many tongues or traditions needed to be ironed out, visual often plays special role in social cohesion. Because of past politics and today's profit-driven events, small fickle forms of visual narrative reflect change and social chance much better than ponderous grandeur of feature-length cinema. Letter grading.
