GRBK 2010. "Great Books of Modern China"

Prof. Su-ching Huang, Department of English
FC:HU (82516) MW 2:00-3:15
Crosslisted with ENGL 3290 Asian American Literature

This cross-listed course will focus on the intimate connection between the Chinese American experience and Chinese modernization. Beginning with a historical overview of Chinese immigration and contact with the West, we look into how the Chinese American identity is shaped and informed by issues surrounding labor and immigration, racialization of gender/sexuality, US-China relations, and so forth. Through close readings of fiction and essays by writers from China, Taiwan, and the US, we will explore what it means to be Chinese, Taiwanese, American, and hyphenated American.
