JAPA 222 - Narratives of Japan: Fiction and Film

1 unit(s)
(Same as ASIA 222 ) This course examines the characteristics of Japanese narratives in written and cinematic forms. Through selected novels and films that are based on the literary works or related to them thematically, the course explores the different ways in which Japanese fiction and film tell a story and how each work interacts with the time and culture that produced it. While appreciating the aesthetic pursuit of each author or film director, attention is also given to the interplay of tradition and modernity in the cinematic representation of the literary masterpieces and themes. No previous knowledge of Japanese language is required.  Peipei Qiu.

Prerequisite(s): One course in language, literature, culture, film or Asian Studies, or permission of the instructor.

Not offered in 2023/24.
