DESCRIPTION

Through a series of case studies, this unit examines the city as locus of power in South, East and Southeast Asia. Focusing on the premodern and early modern periods, and taking a comparative approach, it addresses such issues as the role of symbolism, as well as cosmology and religion, in the physical expression of power. The ancient Indus Valley city of Mohenjodaro, the imperial cities of Vijayanagara, Shahjahanabad (Delhi), Ch`ang-an, Peking, Kyoto, Edo and Angkor, and the colonial cities of Calcutta and Hanoi are studied. Through the use of both written and visual sources, students are introduced to the cultural and physical context of urban life at various stages of Asian history.
