Cross-listed: Asian Studies; Environmental & Urban Studies; Human Rights; Literature  This course examines representations of China’s borderlands (Mongolia, Tibet, Xinjiang, Yunnan, etc.), and its ethnic minorities in a variety of Western and Chinese travel writings. The focus will be on the 1850s - 1911, a time of extensive and often violent encounters between China and the West, and the beginning of the 1980’s to the present, a period of rapid economic development and globalization that have created a flourishing travel industry in the country. Among the authors to be considered are Sven Hedin, Isabella Bird, Archibald J. Little, Alexandra David-Neel, George E. Morrison, Peter Hessler, Ma Jian, Sun Shuyun, and others. We’ll examine their writings from literary, historical, cultural, and political perspectives. Topics to be discussed include colonialism, empire building, modernity, economic development, cultural and artistic authenticity, and construction of self- and ethnic identity. While seeking to engage in conversations about modes of seeing the world and representations of the other, the course also aims to interrogate the impact of tourism on local communities and the concept of nature and its relationship to cultural space. Conducted in English. Class size: 22
