This course offers an introduction to the Chinese literature of the second half of the twentieth century. It is designed for students with little knowledge of Chinese language or culture. The main goal is to gain knowledge of the modern Chinese-speaking world through the mediation of literature. We will also screen film adaptations of literary works to examine the close connection between modern fiction and cinema. Students are expected to nurture a sensibility to literary and visual texts and a critical consciousness in cross-cultural context. For 519 students, secondary readings will also be provided for a better understanding of the critical issues in modern Chinese literature and history.
