September 27, 2012

Join us for the Art History Program’s 2nd Annual Alan Templeton Colloquium “Japanese Art and Its Contexts.” This colloquium will be held Friday, October 5th at 2:00 pm in the Art Annex. Andreas Marks, Director and Chief Curator of the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture in Hanford, California, will talk about “Hiroshige’s Famous Tokaido Series: Its True Sources;” David Gundry, Assistant Professor at UCD, will discuss The Life of an Amorous Man (1682) in his talk, “Hell Hath No Fury: Text and Image in a Pivotal Chapter of Ihara Saikaku’s The Life of an Amorous Man;”  Joseph Sorensen, Associate Professor at UCD, will explore the poetic knowledge of Hosokawa Yusai in his paper “Secret Teachings, Hidden Meanings: The Samurai Scholar Hosokawa Yusai;” and Jeffrey Ruday, Professor at UCD, will show how ceramics provide a unique case for understanding differences between eighteenth-century japonaiseries and nineteenth-century japonisme, and the role of japonisme in the Design Reform movement in “Japonaiserie & Japonisme: Two Sides of Orientalism.”

The colloquium has been made possible by the generous support of Alan Templeton (UC Davis alum 1982), and by the Art History Program, the Program in East Asian Studies and the Department in East Asian Languages and Cultures.
