Part IB | Option

You will have the opportunity to explore the film traditions of East Asia through a number of possible themes, including modernity, identity and nation, and genre.

These broad concerns encompass common themes of comparative significance, such as gender, city and countryside, love, marriage, and family and violence and are expressed in genres such as melodrama.

You will give two presentations and write two essays (1,500-2,000 words) each term, one on each of the four sections of the course, with feedback taking place during supervisions or in group discussions.
