Title

ASIANetwork-Luce Asian Art in the Undergraduate Curriculum Project

Description

This project seeks to tap the Asian art and items of visual culture that exist on selected ASIANetowork college campuses and help faculty who are teaching about Asia integrate these resources into their courses. The images found in the IDEAS collection are the complete works as selected by Asian art consultants; most of these colleges have further Asian art and materials culture works that may or may not come to be included here.

Please direct any questions regarding this collection to IDEAS co-editor and ASIANetwork-Luce Asian art editor, Prof. Karil Kucera,kucera@stolaf.edu.
