As the Chinese Studies Program Director I fully support the creation FAMS 365. We have traditionally offered this course concurrently as a topics course in FAMS, and now that FAMS has a full-time faculty member who can also teach the course if/when she chooses it will be useful for us to share the designator. By doing so we hope to broaden both the Chinese curriculum and the Film and Media Studies curriculum, encouraging students in both departments to interact with one another and develop a cohort of students interested in Chinese film studies. This crosslist is one of the first steps to making that happen.
