ASIAN 261 will provide a general and multi-media introduction to the many dimensions of modern Chinese cultural history from the late 19th century to the 21st century. We will study a broad range of cultural texts, including poetry, fiction, visual arts, films, photography, music, even the Internet. We will examine (1) how various cultural forms rose in response to historical changes and (2) what are some of the core symbols and issues in modern Chinese culture. This course will bring us to a deeper understanding of contemporary China, a country that is undergoing profound changes and already exerts a significant impact on our world.
