East Asian Melodrama - 34448 - FMA 3696 - 802
Notes: An extra media fee of 4,400 yen is required. Repeatable for credit across different topics (consult with the AAC for details). Topical Section Description: In studies of cinema, drama, and literature, melodrama is usually defined as a genre (or mode of expression) that emphasizes the release of powerful emotion. This course will explore how films from Japan, South Korea, and Chinese-speaking countries expand and challenge definitions of melodrama. We will survey the main traditions of melodrama in East Asian cinema since the 1920s and also examine revisionist, subversive, and counter-traditional uses of melodrama, focusing on the representation of family relationships, gender, sexuality, and the social effects of accelerated modernization. We will also consider melodramatic aesthetics and ways of accommodating and deepening emotional response through critical writing.
