Course Description: This course focuses on contemporary Asian cinema and media with a special emphasis on their transnational aspects. Students encounter examples mainly from cinema (both popular and art film), but the course also engages with other forms of media culture like television, computer games, music video, and Internet cultures. These texts are approached through analysis of the contexts of their production, distribution, and consumption as well as through textual analysis. Students learn about new approaches to contemporary Asian cinema and media that understand these cultures as formed through transnational flows rather than as the product of discrete and bounded civilizations as in traditional area studies approaches. Students develop an understanding of the transnationalism of Asian cinema and media today; knowledge of some of the key recent movements in Asian film and media; an appreciation of the historical contexts that underlie these patterns; and a sound grasp of the major scholarly approaches used to analyze these phenomena. Students explore case studies from Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Japan, Thailand, and India.
