Re-made in Asia: Tellings and re-tellings from the Buddha to Godzilla
What is a "remake"? Why are people interested in stories that are told and re-told, sometimes in many versions? This class explores narratives that travel across time and space in Asia, in order to find some answers to these questions. The purpose of this class is to consider how texts from the past are rendered relevant to concerns contemporary to the remakes. Students are expected to have taken at least one 200-level course related to Asia.
