Cinema and Literature in East Asia (3) This course examines the two most relevant and important mediums in understanding the emergence of modern East Asia: cinema and literature. Through a collection of films and literature, students examine how Eastern Asian societies have engaged with the Western tradition and how they each, in their own way, have struggled and changed in the process of modernization. The course material focuses on the emergence of modern society, all the while remaining close to a range of historical and philosophical sources ranging from the philosophical novels of Kobo Abe to Edward Yang and Wu Nien-Jen's experiments in Taiwanese new wave in the 1990s. Students gain an enhanced understanding of the broad historical and cultural forces that have produced and continually affect modern East Asia.
