Re-Imagining the Body

Spring 2018 quarter

Taught by

visual arts, Chinese studies, human development
  • UG

This interdisciplinary program will explore how the human body was imagined by Eastern and Western cultures, and how we can re-imagine the body to achieve better health and a greater sense of well-being. In particular we will study body systems and examine ways in which body was imagined in Western scientific illustration and in Chinese alchemical images. We will look at major organs and body systems from physical, physiological, and spiritual perspectives, practice illustration, and explore new ways of understanding and representing the interdependent work of a healthy body. Credits can be awarded in visual arts and health.
