UC Berkeley announced a new online lecture series by Professor Emeritus James Cahill. The series, A Pure and Remote View: Visualizing Early Chinese Landscape Painting, consists of videotaped introductions with high resolution images and offers “the first comprehensive narrative and unparalleled view of one of the world’s longest and most continuous pictorial art traditions.” The project is sponsored by the Institute of East Asian Studies and can be found, with accompanying lecture notes, here. The video files and lecture notes are to be viewed, downloaded, and used freely by anyone; see the IEAS website for further copyright information.
The Department of the History of Art and Architecture and UCSB Art History Association are co-hosting an Informational Meeting and Halloween Bash for History of Art and Architecture majors, minors, or those curious about the degree and where it will take you. There will be a series of short presentations about some of the requirements and opportunities in the department (e.g., guidelines for the major, EAP, internships, the HAA Honor’s Program) and job possibilities after graduation. There will be time for Q&A and mingling, with refreshments — and masks! — provided. Costumes are also welcome.
