WLL 244 - Viewing China: Visual Cultural and Transnational Cinema


Credits: 4
An examination of masterworks of Chinese film and visual culture viewed within their cultural context and in light of both Chinese and Western literary traditions. Students will consider ways in which Chinese film has represented national identity, national trauma, and national history, and how globalization has given birth to a new transnational Chinese cinema. The course will address cinema as narrative, and in relation to visual art, music, psychology, and cultural history.  Course includes a film screening and discussion session each week. It does not require knowledge of East Asian languages.
Note(s): (Designated a non-Western culture course; fulfills humanities requirement; fulfills humanistic inquiry and global cultural perspective.)
