課程概述

In this course we look closely at several Taiwanese films over the past two decades, and through them we intend to understand what prominent phenomena and changes have been taking place in Taiwan’s social culture. As some of the films speak to the current socio-political conditions on this island, some reflect an emerging cultural trend, while others indicate social problems and propose what we can do in response. In any case, those films present themselves as various attempts to make conversations with Taiwanese society and Taiwanese people, and in this course we “read” those films as we also consider and discuss crucial social issues in Taiwan.

 

課程目標
This course is expected to help us understand and reflect on Taiwanese social culture by not just watching but also “reading” Taiwanese films. It is also intended for the students to familiarize with Taiwanese history in the recent past, crucial events, contemporary social issues as well as cultural conditions.  
課程要求
Each week the students will be asked to engage the recommended readings or films, most of which will be topics of class discussion. They will be encouraged to pursue readings/films beyond the recommendations. How the students respond to the discussions will be considered their overall performance in this course.
