Contemporary Chinese Society in Literature
LTRN 228 /Asian Studies 228
Credits:.83 unit; 3 credits
(Fall semester only)
While most Chinese literature courses in the U.S. focus on 20th century texts produced during the Republican Period (1919-1949), this course introduces students to contemporary Chinese literature produced after the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) by selecting literary works that are not widely taught outside China and that depict and directly affect life in China today. China has made some of the most dramatic changes in its history during the last thirty years, and the literary works created after 1976 are equally meaningful and certainly rival, if not surpass, many works produced during the Republic. Through the magnifying lens of contemporary literature, the course will closely examine the culture and social changes of this remarkably transformative period.
