This course introduces students to a wide gamut of cultural practices in East, South, and Southeast Asia, with special focuses on film, popular music, media (including new media), advertisements, performing arts, sports and food. It provides an excellent opportunity for students to engage in inter-disciplinary approaches to the study of popular culture that is increasingly central to social lives in Asia and around the world. This course will develop students’ appreciation and critical perspectives of various forms of Asian popular culture—as an expanding network of traditional exercises, leisure activities, commercial entertainment, media technologies, and subcultural/countercultural practices within and beyond their geopolitical and cultural boundaries. Lectures will be presented with audio-visual materials.
