Arts of South Asia: Exploring Monuments in Depth

While the growth of digital images has augmented my ability to teach Asian art, the teaching of architecture and sculpture demands firsthand encounters with the objects. By visiting, photographing, and filming key works, I can use the resulting knowledge and resources to enhance my Arts of South Asia course. I plan to travel to Indian and Indonesian sites that I have not seen in person, analyze and visually document them, and use the information to revise the course. It will cover fewer works, more in-depth, to highlight the multivalence and complexity of South Asian visual culture, which has many lessons to teach us in a globalized world. The results (assignments, images, filmed walkthroughs of architecture, site plans) will be available to students and the public through a website that a digital media student and I will build. I also will create problem-solving projects that promote active learning. I plan to carry this out between December 2010 and April 2011 while on sabbatical.
