CMLIT (ASIA) 404Y Topics in Studies of Asian Literatures (3)
This course focuses on Asian literature in a comparative and international frame. Different iterations of this course will have different topics as well as different historical or geographic foci, but may include literatures from the countries of East Asia (China, Japan, Korea), Southeast Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia, Cambodia), or South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan). The various course modules will incorporate writing to allow students to further explore their understanding of Asian literatures. Because the course is comparative, it will highlight relationships between and among literary traditions of Asia, or between Asia and the rest of the world, whether in the fields of poetry, drama, or fictional and non-fictional prose. The course will provide students with opportunities to develop writing skills necessary for academic scholarship in comparative literature and Asian Studies.
