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. Taiwanese films present themselves as various attempts to make conversations with the world that we call Taiwan and live in. This course is expected to help us understand and reflect on Taiwanese social culture by not just watching but also “reading” Taiwanese films.
 

課程目標
This course is aimed for the students to establish a connection between films and social trends/events, that is, between film studies and social studies in Taiwan. The course also encourages the students to relate their own observations as well as experiences in their learning process so as to bear in mind the ideas of interdisciplinary studies.  
課程要求
Attendance 10%; midterm presentation/reading report 30%; final paper 60%.

During the semester, the student will give an oral presentation on an assigned topic or write a report on assigned readings; the report shall be 800 words long. By the end of the term, the student shall also turn in the final paper on subjects appointed by the instructor; the final paper shall be at least 1,500 words long. For those who wish to compose the papers in Chinese, the word count shall be 1,500 for the report and 3,000 for the final paper.
