A wide range of cultural objects and movements will be examined in order to better understand some core issues in modern Chinese culture from the twentieth century to the present.

Requirements include regular attendance, homework, small-scale research assignments, take-home quizzes, occasional responses through Canvas, and a final project that we design with the assistance of the instructor. Reading assignments and other study materials will be made available through Canvas or the internet.
