In this course, you will examine the intertwined relationships between China and the Chinese diaspora as expressed in literature and the arts. What are the tensions and convergences that define China as the imagined homeland and the overseas diasporic communities? In tracing the socio-historical trajectories that developed uniquely in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia, you will gain an understanding of how these accounted for competing senses of national, cultural and political identification and affiliation across the Chinese-speaking world. That authors and auteurs that you will discuss, include Li Yungping, Hugh Lee Kuo-hsiu, Kuo Pao Kun, Chan Koon-chung, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Ann Hui and Tsai Ming-liang, among others.
