Description

This course introduces students to the study of Asia, using a variety of cultural texts (literature, art, and film) from East, South, and Southeast Asia. It looks at the ways in which these forms have traveled within Asia and beyond. While not an exhaustive survey, students will be introduced to the diversity of cultures in Asia through close readings of important classical and modern texts, through the consideration of "keywords" — what do we mean when we speak of "Asia" and "Culture"? — and by considering a range of art objects, maps, and artifacts drawn from the University's own collections.

This course is a prerequisite to the Asian Studies major and may be used towards either the Asian Studies or Asian Languages and Cultures minor requirements.
