授業の概要・目的 This course offers an introduction to the analysis of contemporary Asian cinema, especially focusing on their transculturality. We will examine the concepts of “Asia,” “cinema,” “transculturality,” and then expand our discussion to “national cinema” (including Japanese, Chinese, and South Korean cinemas), and “transnational cinema” (e.g. Chinese language cinema), and “world cinema,” while also drawing links to examples from “world literature” and “world music.”Our goal is to unfold the ways in which these categorizations/ terminologies have been constructed, both in the discipline of Film Studies, and through multimedia platforms, including international film festivals.

To this end, we will view recent films from Asia and read the new works from emerging scholars. We will ask questions such as: What are“Asian cinema” and/or“transcultural cinema”? Are they distinct from other cinemas? How has cinema constructed “Asia” and/or “transculturality”? How do Asian cinema and/or transcultural cinema relate to the public? Together, we will explore different ways that these questions have been answered, contested, and deferred.

Six guest speakers from North America, P.R.C., Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea, will come to our classes, and they will bring new topics and perspectives on Asina cinemas along with films that we'll view in/outside classes. This lecture series is named as "Transcultural Cinema Forum II," and it will open to any audiences as well.
到達目標 This class will give students the tools to map the current state of East Asian cinema and “transculturality” conformed among them, and to develop their original, compelling ideas on those films. All students will strengthen their ability to communicate clearly and make persuasive arguments orally and in writing. We will discuss various films from the PRC, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan, and students will be assigned to see films outside a classroom due to the limitation of class hours.

By the end of this course, students are expected to be able to:
・draw on concepts from Film Studies to analyze a film’s narrative and form, not just its content
・expand knowledge of issues in Asian and transnational cinemas, and apply critical frameworks, film theories, and historiographical approaches
・make original arguments and support them with evidence and a logical chain of reasoning
・communicate their ideas clearly in writing, discussions, and oral presentations
