ASCL 60.04 Modern Chinese Literature across Time, Space and Media

This upper level survey course will introduce participants to major works in modern Chinese literature and related media forms, as well as academic discussions surrounding them. Using a variety of sources, including literary texts, films, music, ballet, installation, and digital arts, we will closely examine each in terms of their content and form. We will look at associated original texts, undertake critical analyses of their social contexts, and consider their influences and the challenges they face in China and the world. We will also introduce at least two genres of literature and arts each week, and compare how similar motifs unfold in different ways through different media. By highlighting the temporal development of modern Chinese literature as well as the spatial dissemination of the texts, the course will allow participants to realize both the depth and range of modern Chinese literature.

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.
