Asian Humanities

Asia plays an increasingly central role in global affairs, in trade and economics, and in our everyday lives. Asian humanities are the gateway to grasping radically different systems of literary traditions, cultural expressions, and social perspectives. Courses in anime and manga, cultural studies, gender issues, fashion theory, film, literature, and travel narrative facilitate the exploration of new vistas, ranging from the high cultural achievements of ancient civilizations to the latest postmodern permutations of globalized cultural trends.
