CHIN 353 - War & Its Legacies in Chin Lit
The course uses texts from Chinese philosophy, biography, poetry, and fiction to examine the significance of war in the Chinese cultural tradition. In early philosophical traditions, what are the obligations of rulers facing war? When is warfare justifiable? What aspects of war and individual action are commemorated in later biographies, prose accounts, and the monumental Ming dynasty novel Three Kingdoms? How are individual and cultural memory developed in poetic mediations on battlefields and post-war social landscape? Texts are in English translation, and will emphasize the pre-modern period. Course conducted in English. Prerequisite: None.
