The course examines gender and sexuality in 20th-century China as a gateway to understanding the political, cultural, and economic realities of China today. We consider the figure of the New Woman during China's civil war and World War II, the androgynous ideal after the founding of the People's Republic, the Successful Man during China's economic reform, and the articulations of Comrades as part of local, national, and international conversations. Readings in English. All films subtitled.
