ASIA 266 - Genre: Asian Horror

1 unit(s)
(Same as FILM 266 ) This course examines contemporary Asian horror. Using a variety of critical perspectives, we deconstruct the pantheon of vampires, monsters, ghosts, and vampire ghosts inhabiting such diverse regions as Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, and the Philippines to explore constructions of national/cultural identity, gender, race, class, and sexuality. We ground these observations within a discussion of the nature of horror and the implications of horror as a trans/national genre. Sophia Harvey.

Prerequisite(s): FILM 175  or FILM 209 , and permission of the instructor.

Two 75-minute periods plus outside screenings.

Not offered in 2021/22.

Course Format: CLS
