How can literature and literary analysis allow us to understand the dynamics of contemporary China? ****

China’s historical and cultural transformations, and its imaginary and actual engagements in everyday life are vividly dramatized by five Chinese authors featured in this course. Taught by Harvard faculty member Professor David Wang, this course will employ the tools of close reading, discussion, and analysis to explore issues that concern the Chinese people, and ponder the power (and limitations) of literature in imagining China anew.

  • China in 10 Words by Yu Hua (ISBN: 978-0-307-73979-7)

  • Red Sorghum: A Novel of China by Mo Yan (ISBN: 978-0-14-016854-9)
