ML 315 - Popular Culture in Contemporary China: Transformation, Consumption, and Exchange

(3.00 cr.)

Critically examines popular culture and everyday life in Chinese society and the cross-cultural significance between China and the West in the context of globalization. Students study film to literature, music to fashion, and culinary arts to entertainment. They investigate the historical, sociopolitical, and aesthetic impacts of selected cultural topics through assigned readings and videos, in-class discussions, a field trip, and interactions with Chinese people. Students also become familiar with major themes, values, and concerns in Chinese culture, and they are able to apply appropriate methodologies and approaches for critical analysis of cultural texts. Keeping a reflective journal each week, students present the journal portfolio as part of the final project. No prior knowledge about China or the Chinese language is required.
