The seminar introduces the problematics of cultural identity, not as essence but as a process to reinvent a people and society. The topic under critical scrutiny lends itself to the study of such issues as history, gender, race and economic class. The selected works of literature and film art help the student understand the constructed nature of identity and interrogate the differing cultural emphases and conscious attitudes that shape the mythologies of “China” as either self-same or the West’s Other.
