CHI 226 - In the Name of Religion: Love and Gender in Chinese Fiction and Film


This course will focus on love, gender roles, and sexuality in the religious contexts:  how they are conceived of according to Buddhism, Daoism, and Confucianism, and how they play out separately, as well as against each other.  The course will examine two distinct but closely related literary traditions.  One is literature in religion: it is a popular practice with both Buddhism and Daoism to employ literature as a vehicle for their ideologies.  The other is religion in literature: a popular literary tradition that habitually exploits religious themes and motifs for entertainment.

Satisfies the cultural diversity requirement.
Students entering before 2012: satisfies Literature distribution requirement.
