Nature and the Environment in East Asian Culture

First-Year Seminar Program 117

Usual Description

This course focuses on concepts of nature, and the interaction of society and the environment in Japan, China, and Korea. How are East Asian concepts of nature influenced by Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, and traditional aesthetics? Are these notions relevant to society’s relation to nature in the modern, industrialized nation state, and to environmentalism and sustainability? We will work with film, literature, architecture, and the visual arts to explore these issues.
