Studies a variable selection of popular film genres produced and circulated in Asia (e.g., martial arts, horror, musicals, anime, melodramas, science fiction, monster movies, comedy) that have an impact across the region, with emphasis on East and Southeast Asia, and beyond. Takes a historical and transnational comparative approach to analyzing shifting narrative and visual and other cinematic realizations of each genre across different contexts, including Western reception and cross-cultural adaptations. Same as CWL 276 and EALC 276.
