New Class: Chinese Media Cultures

Yale Daily News reports on the new course offerings:

“The University’s East Asian Languages and Literatures Department is offering eight new courses this semester, according to assistant professor Lucas Bender.

Bender said that three of these new courses — “Chinese Media and Popular Culture,” “Natsume Sōseki” and “Theater and Drama Traditions of China and Japan” — are taught by new faculty members Xuenan Cao, Timothy Goddard and Allison Bernard.

“We are very excited to have these new specialists enriching our course offerings this year,” Bender said. “I would recommend students jump on the chance to take these courses now as they may not be offered again for some time.”
