CHIN 110 - Modern Chinese Literature


Representative readings in translation of Twentieth-century Chinese literature from the late-Qing dynasty to the People’s Republic of China, and contemporary Taiwan. This course will offer a window in Twentieth-century China and an introduction to the study of literature, and ask: Why do we read literature, and about different literary approaches and movements? Students are expected to examine the socio-political context and questions of political engagement, social justice, class, gender, race, and human rights. All readings are in English translation and no background in China or Chinese is required.

Cross-listed with CHIN 310
