Home / Dr. Cynthea BOGEL


I teach graduate seminars and undergraduate lecture courses on selected topics in Japanese art history, pre-modern to contemporary, and the Buddhist visual culture of East Asia. At Kyushu University I am responsible for graduate seminars in the International M.A. Program in Japanese Humanities, Faculty of Humanities and undergraduate lectures in the School of Letters. I teach in both English and Japanese. In 2012 and 2014 (upcoming) I taught/will teach intensive courses as guest professor at Gakushuin University, Tokyo, entitled “Death, Expression, and Art History in Japan,” “Issues in Museum Studies” (graduate level) and “Ninth-century Buddhist Icons” (undergraduate level).
