Women in Modern Indian Literature 

This course will focus on constructions of women articulated by both male and female authors in Modern Hindi-Urdu and Bengali literature in English translation. We will read a variety of literary forms––such as poetry, short stories, novels and essays––in an attempt to explore and analyze the multifarious constructions of women’s subjectivity, the ways in which women subvert and/or uphold traditions that posit their inferiority and the social consequences of these actions. A selection of the literature we will read includes but is not limited to: Rabindranath Tagore’s The Home and the World and A Grain of Sand, Prabhat Kumar Mukhopadhyay’s short story “Devi,” the poems of Suryakanth Tripathi (a.k.a. “Nirala”), Mahadevi Varma’s poems and essays and the short stories of Razia Sajjad Zaheer.

EDWARDS, P S

This course, jointly taught by professors Sylvia Tiwon and Penny Edwards, introduces students to the literature of Southeast Asia by exploring how fiction, poetry and drama engage their social and cultural contexts.  We will discuss how works of modern literature emerge from oral and court traditions, the impact of early global trade, the colonial encounter and nationalist movements.

Literature has played a critical role in Southeast Asian cultural, social and political life both as a source of aesthetic pleasure and entertainment, and for its persuasive powers.   Thinking of literature as cultural action enables us to see Southeast Asian writers and poets as change agents whose work cannot be quarantined as “culture” but has deeper implications for struggles to improve the human condition in multiple social and political contexts.  Our focus on “trans” embraces both the polyphonic world of Southeast Asian literary production, and the literature of estrangement penned by Southeast Asians overseas and Europeans in Southeast Asia.

DALTON, J

Almost by definition, the imaginary is unreal. The realm of children, dreamers, poets, artists, religious visionaries, the superstitious, and lunatics, it is often discussed as an epiphenomenal curiosity—a creative byproduct of the mind, but a misleading one. In this seminar, we will take imagination more seriously. Through a series of readings, in combination with several invited guests and lectures, we propose to explore how imagination is in fact fundamental to a wide range of academic disciplines, and even to human existence itself.  Readings will therefore be drawn from a broad range of communities, from Indian and Chinese literature to Jewish mysticism and Psychoanalytic theory.  In February, the course will join with a stand-alone four-week seminar on “Models of the Mind” being taught by David Shulman of Jerusalem University, Spring 2016 Avenali Chair at the Townsend Center for the Humanities.  These weeks will culminate in a series of Townsend Center events on dreaming and the imagination that students will be expected to attend.  Note that students may enroll in Shulman’s four-week seminar separately through the Townsend Center.  No prerequsites.

This course is an introduction to the cultures, histories, religions and arts of Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and East Timor.  We will explore indigenous and exogenous frameworks for understanding the region from its early and mythological states to the present.  As much as possible, we will look to original source materials with a dual emphasis, firstly on traditional and modern rituals and artistic performances, and secondly, on formal and informal mechanisms of law and governance.  All materials will be presented in English, and no previous language or area expertise is required.

Prerequisites: 1A or equivalent.

Students complete their study of everyday standard Khmer to a "survival" level.

While the memorization of vocabulary and common personal exchanges practiced in Khmer 1A will make up the majority of material studied, students will have some opportunity to learn to improvise and talk about personal work and research interests in Khmer. Topics include transportation and directions, the world of work, religion, health, and conducting daily life in Cambodia. Students learn to read simple authentic texts such as folk tales, personal letters, forms and roadside signs. Students continue their study of culturally appropriate behavior in the context of Khmer culture, including notions of "saving face" and maintaining social harmony, and how these are expressed in both spoken language and in one's actions.

Students learn to read roadside signs, scholarly articles, and an entire Khmer novel.

Topics include current events in Cambodia, Cambodian history and politics, and a basic overview of traditional Khmer literature. Much of this study will be accomplished by working on projects in groups with other students. One such project will involve the preparation and performance of a play based on sections of the modern Khmer novel students read in this course. All students will design and carry out an independent research project on the topic of their choice (which will account for 30% of the final grade), and present their research at the end of the second semester to an audience of their peers, entirely in Khmer.

However, the standard by which both written and oral material will be judged will be much higher for Advanced students. Special attention will be paid to formal speaking style and advanced grammatical structures in Khmer for all students, and colloquial spoken expression for non-native speakers.

From Nicki Minaj, G-Eazy, Grinderman and Elton John to Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman, Marilyn Monroe’s afterlife spans multiple generations and genres. This seminar contrasts that legacy with four of her global contemporaries. Joyce Bryant and Sara Montiel both rocketed to fame in the US only to vanish from the pages and stages of North American popular culture. Lin Dai of Hong Kong and Dy Saveth of Cambodia were widely revered screen goddesses of their era in East and Southeast Asia, but Lin’s career was cut short by suicide and Dy’s, by civil war and the Khmer Rouge regime.

Bryant graced the cover of Life magazine in 1955, was voted one of the five most beautiful black women in the world by Ebony in 1956, defied Ku Klux Klan threats to perform in Miami, and advocated against Jim Crow laws.  The first Spanish actress courted by Hollywood, Montiel gained fame in Mexico before co-starring with Gary Cooper in Vera Cruz (1954).  Her 1950s box-office success in Spain catapulted her to stardom across Western Europe and Latin America, with soundtrack sales eclipsing those of Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.  Lin Dai, who visited Hollywood and audited courses at Columbia University in 1959, was widely iconized in China and beyond while Dy Saveth, awarded the first Miss Cambodia title in 1959, earned a wide fan-base across Southeast Asia for her film roles.

Of these five artistic geniuses, why does Monroe’s legacy still dominate and subordinate?  And why does Marilyn’s celebration of her body still incite the invective of a range of writers from feminist critics to fashion pundits? In exploring these questions, we will examine the roles of misogyny, Anglo-centrism, white supremacy and cultural chauvinism in the elision of Bryant, Dy, Lin and Montiel from mainstream celluloid and musical media in North America.  We will also examine how the female body and voice remains a prime site for virtual and actual acts of erasure, ranging from the 1950s radio and screen ban on Bryant’s songs and a Monroe dress to the censure of Montiel’s film in 1970s China, 1990s physical violence against Cambodian women performers, the male-dominated fashion industry’s prompotion of the post-millennial thigh-gap and Style magazine’s prescriptions for women’s work wear.  Our sources include news media, film and audio archives, memoir, couture, and film and radio board censorship rulings.
