This course will provide a general introduction to modern Chinese cultural history from the late 19th century to the 21st century. We will study (1) how various cultural forms (such as literature, visuals arts, theater, music, and cinema) rose in response to historical changes and (2) what are some of the core symbols and issues in modern Chinese culture. Our main objective is to gain a deeper understanding of the complex experience of modernity in China. Students will also have the opportunity to develop greater analytical skills in reading different cultural texts.
