ASIA 305 - Close Encounters of the Third Kind: East Asian Cultures through Film (INTS 305)

An interdisciplinary course that comparatively engages East Asian cultures in the context of the immense political and cultural transformations over the past century as represented in popular cinema. It aims to critically examine questions of aesthetics and genres as they relate to these East Asian cinemas; the social, cultural and political contexts for negotiating issues ranging from history, nationalism, geopolitics, globalization to urban culture, gender and sexuality; and the contexts for the global reception of these films. No language prerequisites. Spring.
