New Course for Spring: Chinese History through Film

A new course has recently been added to the Spring 2013 schedule:

HIST 300AA: Chinese History through Film / Wed 6-8:45 pm / Prof. Susan Fernsebner

This course explores the intersection of Chinese history and cinema, with a focus on mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Exploring major films from the 1950s through the present day, key themes will include: revolutionary aesthetics and realities, presentations of gender, nation, and violence, as well as issues related to late twentieth century globalization. HIST 300AA will provide credit for both the History major and the Asian Studies Minor.
