Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course traces the development of travel writing from the Han dynasty (206 B.C.–A.D. 221) to the Song dynasty (960–1279). Special attention is paid to the ways in which Chinese writers have ceaselessly negotiated humankind's relationship with the natural world in their accounts of travel—both imagined and actual. Readings selected for investigation are assigned in English translation. A final research paper on an approved topic pertaining to the central theme of this course is required.

When Offered Spring.
