Teaching Film from the People’s Republic of China, co-edited by Professor of East Asian Languages and Literature Zhuoyi Wang, was recently published by the Modern Language Association as part of its Options for Teaching series.

This volume incorporates a diverse range of perspectives, including anthropology, communication studies, ethnomusicology, film, history, literature, linguistics, sociology, theater, and urban geography, to explore the realm of Chinese cinema. The book, with 21 chapters, aims to uncover what films can reveal or obscure about Chinese history and society, while also illustrating how the study of PRC films can acquaint students with broader issues of historical consciousness and media representation.

Wang also contributes a chapter titled “Teaching Ideology through a Controversial Chinese Film: The Case of The Wandering Earth” to the volume.
