4 credits (Spring)
Cross-listed as: EAS 295-01 .  This course explores the historical and literary intersection of two influential cultures and transnational discourses, namely the Sino-Jewish encounter during WWII. Students will compare historical documentation from the Jewish exile in Shanghai with recreated media from these historic events such as literary forms, mass media productions, memoirs, documentaries, amine and more. By combining Holocaust Studies and East Asian Studies students will adapt interdisciplinary critical approaches to the scholarly debates of the Shanghai Jewish exile.
