East Asian Humanities II: Traditions and Transformations

Erin Yu-Tien Huang and Franz K. Prichard

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

This course explores East Asia in the global context of imperialism, colonialism, the Cold War, and neoliberalism. We will traverse a wide range of materials (literature, film, photography, installation art) to understand how they are connected by historical forces. Open to
anyone interested in a critical understanding of modern East Asian cultures, this course offers an interdisciplinary introduction that draws upon methods from film and media studies, art history, literary studies, and critical race studies. The course includes trips to the Princeton
art museum to encourage student engagement in contemporary aesthetics.
