Tufts University: Xueping Zhong - Chinese - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Xueping Zhong | CHNS080 - Chinese Cinema: 1930 - Present | Chinese2005-12-21

Review:
This was a typical film course at Tufts, as far as structure. Professor Zhong is enthusiastic about the films, and while her biases might show sometimes, there was always lively conversation and she seemed interested in hearing students' opinions. She challenged the class to do more than just say they liked or disliked the films, and lead the class to think in filmic terms that perhaps most of the class was unfamiliar with prior to the class.

Workload:
Class was what you make of it. Readings were helpful but unneccessary most of the time. There were weekly reflections and a couple 8 page papers, one midterm quiz (easy because covered specified material), and then a take-home final. Overall very manageable workload, and while class sometimes dragged on because the non-screening class is also nearly three hours (I took a few 10 minute "just can't keep my eyes open" naps) I felt bad about that because Prof. Zhong is great. I recommend the course if you are looking to get your feet wet either in film analysis OR Chinese history.

Xueping Zhong | CHNS112 - WOMEN GENDER & MOD 20THC | Chinese2005-05-01

Review:
Simply put, the professor is excellent - she knows possibly everything that there is to know about the subject, and then some. She is always available outside of class if you have a question.

Workload:
The amount of reading assigned was fairly heavy. The novels and stories assigned were light easy reads. However, she does like to assign critical essays a bit - which assumes that the reader has a pretty strong background in literary theory. They're not fun - at all.

In terms of the papers, the topics are pretty straightforward, she usually give out 3 topics, with questions to guide the structure of the essay. And if none of them strike your fancy, you can always pick your own. She is a very critical grader - when it comes to ideas. Be very careful about your points - make sure that you can back them up and that they actually make sense. Having said that, she is a really fair grader. And if she sees a problem, will not hesitate to write long comments.
