Dr. Cambell illustrated the rich history of Kyoto with insightful themes that capture the unique personality of Kyoto. Through a lens of power, religion, aesthetics and gardens he helped us deeply see 8 World Heritage Sites. He peeled back centuries to bring to life the people who built these remarkable temples and palaces, sharing stories of what drove their actions. This context added resonance to what we can see today in the beautiful photos used to enhance the class. Overall, an illuminating and learned perspective by a Kyoto resident who retains the eye of an outsider and so can help us bridge cultures. Exceptional!
Very good lecture with wonderful photo illustrations. Almost as good as a trip to Kyoto.
Gavin Campbell's depth of knowledge and the clarity of his presentations make every one of his lectures fascinating. I have taken every course and conversation of his that Context offers and every one of them has been superb.
Dr. Gavin Campbell is so learned. He is an excellent presenter...organized, articulate and interesting.
