COLLOQUIUM ON MAJOR TEXTS
AHUM1400V001 4 points.

This course explores the core classical literature in Chinese, Japanese and Korean Humanities. The main objective of the course is to discover the meanings that these literature offer, not just for the original audience or for the respective cultures, but for us. As such, it is not a survey or a lecture-based course. Rather than being taught what meanings are to be derived from the texts, we explore meanings together, informed by in-depth reading and thorough ongoing discussion.

KOREAN LITERATURE & FILM
EAAS3215V001 3 points.

This course traces the history of Korean cinema and literature from the 1930s to the early 2000s. Particular attention is given to colonialism, national division, war, gender relations, authoritarianism, urbanization, consumer culture, and diaspora. What kinds of familial, social, economic, and political relations do these films and literary works envision? We will link films and literary texts to their historical context, noting how representations of people, places, and ideas have changed over time—from colonialism, through poverty and malaise in the aftermath of the Korean War, to North Korea’s continuing search for autonomy in the world system and South Korea’s current position as global economic power and maker of the “Korean Wave ”

Supernatural in Japanese Lit
EAAS4831W001 3 points.

Beings, occurrences, and experiences that defy common sense and rational understanding abound in modern
Japanese literature and film. Sometimes they are rooted in Japan’s rich body of tales about monsters and
ghosts. Sometimes they are tied to the beliefs of Buddhism and Christianity. Sometimes they emerge from the
chaos and uncertainty of the modern cityscape. In this course we will consider how, and more importantly
why, “supernatural” elements permeate modern Japanese literature and film ranging from the early 19th to
the late 20th centuries.
