Christianity in Chinese Literature
This course adopts an innovative approach to examine the interactions between Christianity and Chinese literature from the 19th to early 20th centuries. Literary texts to be analyzed include mainly the late Qing missionary novels, and works of May Fourth writers (such as Lu Xun, Bing Xin and Xu Dishan). This course aims to widen the students' perspectives in the indigenization of Christianity in Chinese religious and literary contexts, the rhetorical influences of the Bible on the emergence of modern Chinese literature, and the interdisciplinary study of literature and religion.
