GS 345 - Media, Popular Culture, and Changing Chinese Society

(3-4 S.H.)

This course is designed to provide students with a critical introduction to media and popular cultural landscape and changing cultural practice in contemporary China. It examines the complex interplay between media, popular culture, and the fast changing Chinese society in the reform era (1978 to present). Students will learn to assess the form, meaning, and significance of media and popular culture; they will also learn to analyze the formation of cultural and social identity of Chinese through concrete case studies. Students will study popular culture as something more than leisurely entertainment; they will learn about it as a cultural process already inscribed in relations of power. No prior knowledge of China or the Chinese language is required.  Meets GOAL 6 (Humanities) and GOAL 8.
