Visualizing Cultures

Visualizing Cultures explores the potential of the Web for developing innovative image-driven scholarship and learning, particularly around issues of bridging cultures. Topical units found here  focus on Japan in the modern world and early-modern China, but the thrust of these explorations extends beyond Asia per se,  to address "culture" in much broader ways—cultures of modernization, war and peace, consumerism, images of "Self" and "Others," and so on.
