CHIN 3510 - Sinophone Literature and Film


3 Credit(s) | $12 Fee

This course is a combination of Sinophone culture and film studies. Students will discuss migration, identity, and diaspora in different historical periods and areas, then explore Chinese cosmopolitanism by examining martial art films and directors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, America, and mainland China. These two sections will cover topics related to modern Sinophone history and locality, such as the representations of history, memory and trauma, translocality, the international film industry and market, migration, etc. At the same time, this course also teaches students how to comprehend, analyze, and critically respond to film. It equips them with the vocabulary for discussing how films shape our surroundings, our relationships, and our understanding of the world and those who inhabit it. Students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of both culture and technology in production-oriented critical film assignments.

This course is taught in English and no prior knowledge of Chinese language or history is required. (As Needed) [Graded (Standard Letter)]
