FYSP 190 - Between Tradition and Modernity: Gender and Sexuality in Chinese Language Culture

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
This course studies Chinese-language cinema, literature, and digital media since the early 20th century. In discussing the concept of gender and sexuality, this course surveys modern media culture in different Chinese-speaking regions. Introducing different analytical methods to discuss literature, film, art, comic books, and social media, it aims to cultivate students’ sensitivities to the intersection and divergence between modern Chinese culture and Euro-American culture. It also brings awareness to cultural and social differences in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. As an introductory liberal arts course, this course aims to develop students’ critical thinking and encourage students to examine assumptions, stereotypes, and social inequality. The class format includes mini-lectures, in-class presentations, group-led class discussions, and writing workshops. It also includes a library session on information literacy.
