Notes: *First Year Course only; cross-listed with ASIA 194-01* From a “sick man of Asia” to a “peaceful rising” nation, from red guards to the online hackers, modern and contemporary China sees tremendous social change and cultural creativity. Revolution and romance are two recurring themes people often visit and revisit, reflecting an intense contemplation on the self and the public, the individual and the collective, the personal and the political. This course seeks to critically understand China by reading modern and contemporary Chinese fiction and film, which not only tell us about China, but also universal human experiences across geographical or cultural boundaries. No prior knowledge of China or Chinese is required.The course fulfills General Education Requirement of Internationalism and Argumentative Writing (WA).

CHIN 294-01

Cramming for the Exam: Chinese Education in Literature and History

  • Days: M
  • Meeting Time: 07:00 pm-10:00 pm
  • Room: NEILL 217
  • Instructor: Rivi Handler-Spitz

Notes: *First day attendance required; cross-listed with EDUC 294-02 and ASIA 294-01* On tests, Chinese students consistently outperform Americans. This fact has been attributed to Chinese cultural emphasis on education and respect for teachers. But where do these values come from? What constituted an elite education in premodern China? Who had access to it, and what political goals did it serve? This course traces the historical development of the civil service examination system, the benchmark of social and political success in imperial China. We will study the Confucian classics and commentaries, which formed the backbone of the curriculum. Other topics include frustrated scholars’ fictional accounts of the unfairness of the exam system, Europeans’ praise of it as a model for the equitable recruitment of civil servants, and women’s strategies for circumventing a system that explicitly excluded them.
