Topics in Chinese Drama

We read a selection of Southern plays (also known as chuanqi) from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Discussions concern the formation of the genre, performance styles (including watching some kunqu), and the contents of the plays. Students produce a fifteen- to twenty-page research paper over the course of the semester.
