ASIAN 1102 - FWS: Narrative, Memory, and Representations of the Past


     
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

First-Year Writing Seminar.

R. McNeal.

How is the self perceived in relation to the world in Chinese literary tradition? This course examines a wide variety of autobiographical writings in China by inquiring into the tension between past and present, history and memory, public and private, and individual and family, and focusing on the ways in which the reconstruction of self has been deeply related to its cultural, social, and political conditions. The readings are the most popular and influential Chinese texts in English translation, covering the period from the 2nd century to the contemporary period. Writing assignments include self-narratives and a series of reflective and analytical pieces, with an emphasis on revision practices.
