Welcome - Modern Chinese Literature CHIN 3062   Modern Chinese Literature
A survey of representative works in modern Chinese literature, this course is designed to enhance students’ understanding of modern Chinese society and culture through reading works by major Chinese authors from the Republican period, over three decades—1919 to 1949. It was a period of cultural clashes between traditional Chinese culture and Western influences, a time of wars, political and ideological struggles and changes. All readings are in English, as is the language of instruction. A background in Chinese language, culture, and/or literature is encouraged but not required.
