Description
THE WORLD OF CHINA
This course will survey the wax and wane of pop culture through disparate phases of social and political developments of modern china. The readings will introduce students to works of literature, art, and film to see how tradition and modernity, elite and mass cultures, East and West conflict and converge; how china absorbs, adapts as well as resists capitalistic modernity while embracing global market economy; how china grapples with urban alienation, social flux, moral laxity and other negative aspects of industrialization and urbanization. The course will make available to students a host of art images, dvd clips and e-texts to enhance and expand their perception of modern china.
