Crossing Cultures: Caroline Bacon

"Since the 16th century, with increased trading between Europe and the East, European arts have shown influences from China, the Indian Sub-Continent, the Middle East and Japan, while in turn creating changes in those countries. This course will study those influences and explore the nature of crossing cultures from the 16th to 20th centuries. "
