ASIA 310 - East Asian Literature in Translation (INTS 310) (4)

An interdisciplinary course that explores the ways in which literature has served as both a culturally determined medium for the representations and perceptions about East Asia, and a reflection of the diverse expressions of East Asian cultures. This course introduces students to East Asian literatures in translation and uses literature as a window into East Asian cultures and sensibilities. Students focus on genres, writers, and literary styles and movements that have left a lasting mark on East Asian literary history; they also focus on how East Asian aesthetics differ from the Western norms. Odd years Fall.
