EAST 324 - Chinese Queer Cinema

FC ARHU CD WADV
4 credits
This seminar surveys Chinese-language queer cinema since the 1960s up to the contemporary period in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. It investigates the visual representation of gay, lesbian, and transgender desires within different historical and cultural contexts. While studying the historical development of queer in each region and the mutual influences across the regions, the course particularly discusses the way cinema mobilizes the notion of queer as a trope for socio-political discourses, and the way the representation of queer negotiates with mainstream ideologies.
This course is cross-listed with CINE 329
