UBC has confirmed that all Asian Studies Term 2 courses will be online. The meeting days and times currently displayed reflect the maximum time that students will be expected to meet synchronously with the instructor. Courses that are meeting for fewer than 3 hours per week will have traditional lectures replaced with asynchronous learning tasks. The overall workload of the course will remain unchanged.

This 4th year research seminar will explore the figure of the Chinese ghost in a variety of representations across time, space and media. Chinese philosophical and religious attitudes to the supernatural and the place of the (gendered) ghost will be explored. Classical tales of the strange, drama, poetry, and pre-modern vernacular narratives will be discussed, along with modern iterations of hauntings in fiction, news stories and film.
