A SYLLABUS FOR A COURSE IN BURMESE ART AT THE UNDERGRADUATE LEVEL. INTERIM REPORT.
BAILEY, JANE T.
PROGRESS MADE IN THE PREPARATION OF AN ILLUSTRATED SYLLABUS ON THE HISTORY OF BURMESE ART IS REPORTED. PREPARATION OF THE SYLLABUS IS A TWO-FOLD TASK REQUIRING THE WRITING OF AN OUTLINE AND THE GATHERING OF SLIDES FOR THE VISUAL PRESENTATION. THE AUTHOR DESCRIBES THE DIFFICULTIES AND SUCCESSES OF GATHERING PUBLISHED MATERIALS AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF DATED ARTIFACTS. DATED SPECIMENS WERE NEEDED TO BUILD A PROVISIONAL FRAMEWORK OF STYLE CHANGES THAT OCCURRED IN CERTAIN TIME PERIODS AND CERTAIN PLACES OF ORIGIN, BUT FEW DATED SPECIMENS COULD BE FOUND. THE GENERAL SCHEME FOR FORMULATION OF THE SYLLABUS WILL BE (1) MAJOR ARTS (ARCHITECTURE, SCULPTURE, PAINTING) AND (2) MINOR ARTS (TEXTILES, LACQUER, POTTERY, HANDICRAFTS). THE SYLLABUS WILL PRESENT THE UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT WITH FIVE HISTORICAL PERIODS WHICH WILL INCLUDE (1) THE PRE-PAGAN PERIOD, (2) PAGAN PERIOD, (3) INDEPENDENT STATES PERIOD, (4) SECOND EMPIRE PERIOD, AND (5) BRITISH BURMA PERIOD. CAUTION WILL BE APPLIED NOT TO OVERBURDEN THE STUDENT WITH QUANTITY. RATHER, THE SELECTION WILL BE HELD TO A LIMIT BELIEVED TO BE SUFFICIENT FOR EFFECTIVE LEARNING AT THE BEGINNING LEVEL. (AL)
