Course Description: This course deals with cultural and social interactivity of the past three decades between China’s postsocialist reform and the culture of Chinese youth. The course explores four distinctive and interrelated topics: food, sexuality, nationalism, and environment. Topics include the cultural politics of food and the sense of hunger in post-Mao China; ethnography of recent Chinese dating culture ranging from urban night life, to the “leftover women” phenomenon, to the cultural sensation of If You Are the One (Fei Cheng Wu Rao); the ways the narration of the nation in Internet literature, film, and television gives rise to various public discourses of contemporary China; how young cultural workers engage environmental challenges China faces through the forms of documentary and feature films. The course looks into this new cultural situation of Chinese youth from the dialectics of the bodily and the spiritual, and of the heroic and the quotidian. Assessment: participation (15%), four 1-3 page papers (40%), presentation/discussion (30%), weekly web discussions (15%).
