CHIN 61 Topics in Modern Chinese Literature and Culture

Following the definition generally accepted by the Chinese themselves, “modern” in this context refers to two large periods: that preceding the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, and that following 1949. The former (i.e., xiandai) can be pushed as far back as the Opium War of 1839-42, and the latter (i.e., dangdai) can be extended to “today.” Courses offered under this rubric examine the main literary and cultural phenomena and events taking place in China (including Taiwan and Hong Kong) over this period of one and a half centuries. Courses numbered 61 - 63 are literature-in-translation courses, and do not require knowledge of the Chinese language. There are no prerequisites and courses are open to students of all classes. They may be repeated for credit if the topic varies.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
