CHINESE 481-003 (2012-13) Modern Chinese Literature I (For Heritage Students): Selected Readings in Modern Chinese Novel from Lu Xun to Zhang Dachun 现现代代中中国国文文学学一一 ((1199118- - 11997755: : 自自鲁鲁迅迅至至 张张大大春春 小小说说选选读读 ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Time: T/R 15:30-17:00 Classroom: T- Buchanan B 215 / R-Buchanan D 218__ A) Approach and Objective: This is an intensive reading course for students who have acquired advanced reading knowledge of modern Chinese before entering university. Selected reading materials cover a wide range of modern and contemporary Chinese fiction. Through intensive reading of major writers’literary works from 1918 to 1975, from Lu Xun to Zhang Dachun, students are expected to gain a better understanding of the development and essential themes of Chinese fiction before 1975. Through a series of strict and rigorous discussions, students will cultivate analytical ability, critical perspective, rational argument and objective criticism. This course will take a social-anthropological approach to the novel, which examines humanity under historical, social, political and philosophical conditions. Individual predicaments, struggles, resolutions, consequences, and reconciliations in each and every story will be investigated to illustrate the Chinese people’s adaptation to the drastic social, political and ideological transition and transformation of the twentieth century, thus establishing a national identity of their own. B) Requirement: Before coming to each class, students are expected to comprehensively read the short stories or novels assigned for the day, to be ready to participate in class discussion, and to share their insights with the class. Students will be put in groups to give presentations on assigned topics and to preside over subsequent class discussions. C) Registration: Students who wish to take Chinese literature courses are required to complete an “On-Line Placement Questionnaire” to obtain a placement approval for registration. Students without the approval will be removed from the class. To get your placement approval, please go to D) Eligibility: Any student who completed Grade 12 in an educational institution in China, and any student who has taken any course in any Chinese college or university (regardless of major and regardless of whether they had taken any Chinese literature courses at the post-secondary level), is deemed ineligible for any of the heritage literature courses in the Department of Asian Studies. All students in the class are responsible to observe this regulation. E) Examination: Short quizzes may be conducted weekly or from time to time. Exemption from quizzes will not be given without proper medical proof. Mid-term and final examinations are both in-class, 3-hour long tests, in which students are required to write an essay on one of 5 given topics, each relating to 3-4 stories.
