WHAT WERE THE STRENGTHS OF THIS COURSE? PLEASE BE SPECIFIC AND USE CONCRETE EXAMPLES WHERE POSSIBLE.

 

Course

 

Evaluate the course overall.: 4 (very good)

The course jumped in right away to the materials. It taught me so much about ceramics, especially since I had little to no background in the subject matter.

Evaluate the course overall.: 5 (excellent)_Excellent combination of content on ceramic arts, history and cultural theories

Evaluate the course overall.: 4 (very good) good lectures and interactive readings

Evaluate the course overall.: 5 (excellent)

This course went very in depth about the history of ceramics not only in Korea, but also East Asia as a whole, even though there's very little research on this domain written in English. I thought Dr. Stiller did a fantastic job of letting us examine the different era's of ceramics as well as critically analyze the strengths and biases of the papers we read.

 


WHAT DID YOU LEARN? HOW DID THIS COURSE CHANGE YOU?

 

Course

 

Evaluate the course overall.: 4 (very good)

I learned a lot about Korean history and Chinese history as well. The ceramics pieces were beautiful, and I feel like I can sound sophisticated talking about such pieces from now on.

Evaluate the course overall.: 4 (very good)

looked at ceramics from both a historical and artistic perspective, gave me good cultural knowledge about korea/how to look and visually analyze ceramics

Evaluate the course overall.: 5 (excellent)

I think what I took away most from this course was an ability to critically analyze pieces of art. I had taken art courses in the past, but never from a historical perspective and by presenting on specific pieces, I was able not only to appreciate the piece itself, but its background and what the piece meant at the time and now.
