Prof. Sheldon Lu from the University of California Davis will give a talk on the “Four Major Critical Paradigms in Contemporary Chinese-Language Film Studies” at 16:00-18:00, in L205A […]


The talk traces the genealogy and characteristics of four prominent theoretical models in Chinese film studies: Chinese national cinema, transnational Chinese cinema, Chinese-language cinema, Sinophone cinema.
The paper discusses the strengths as well as possible limitations of each model in dealing with the diverse film traditions of the Chinese-speaking world.
