Abstract

Develop a clearer understanding of modern China by exploring the role of art, literature and the 'noble hero' in Chinese culture.

Description

Look beyond the clichés and stereotypes of art and literature in Chinese culture

Chinese culture has not been explored in as much depth as Chinese history and politics. By uncovering the richness and diversity of Chinese culture, you can gain a broader understanding of modern China as a whole.

This course by the University of Exeter covers three important aspects of Chinese culture. Learn how the concept of the ‘noble hero’ is portrayed on cultural and political platforms. Examine the tension created by traditional and modern values in Chinese landscape art, and analyse literature created by marginalised groups like immigrants.

This course is for anyone interested in building their knowledge of Chinese culture and society. You don’t need any prior experience or qualifications.
