ML 301 - Modern Chinese Literature

(3.00 cr.)

Since the late nineteenth century, China has witnessed a history of radical transformations. Literature in modern and contemporary China became a battleground for competing political, cultural, and aesthetic discourses. Through a close reading of the literary texts and a review of the socio-historical background, this course provides diverse approaches to understanding the ever changing lives of the Chinese people. Issues of tradition, religion, family, gender, etc., are reexamined within the context of reform, revolution, and modernization in China. Films based on literary works with English subtitles are occasionally shown. All materials are in English translations. IA
