touching upon all the questions related to Chinese politics we will focus on the key political trends at play since the economic reforms of the 1980s, and in particular the evolution of the ways in which the regime deals with society and how it renews its elite. A large part of the seminar will be dedicated to methodological issues, both related to the study of political regimes in general and to doing research on contemporary Chine more precisely.

Teachers : Jérôme DOYON (PhD Student). Pedagogical format : Seminar Course validation : Students will be evaluated based on their participation in class, on a brief research design developed during the class, and on a ﬁnal term paper to be completed within one month following the seminar. Throughout the three days of seminar, the students will develop a research design on a potential research on one aspect of a communist political system (without having to implement it). It will include a research question as well as a potential methodology to solve the puzzle. Paper topics will be discussed individually with the students. They could be in the continuity of the research design developed during the seminar. The paper will be graded based on the clarity and quality of the research question and of the data and arguments presented in the paper. Participation in class : 20% Research Design : 30% Final term paper : 50% Pedagogical method : This is a reading and discussion based workshop, divided into 6 sessions.

WRITING FOR THE SCREEN
Semester : Autumn Number of hours : 24 Language of tuition : English
Teachers : Nathanaël MARANDIN (Film Director). Pedagogical format : Workshop Course validation : To validate the course, the student is expected to do 1 written exercise at home, 1 oral presentation of a ﬁrst draft at midterm and 1 ﬁnal version of a script for a short movie. Since it is an interactive workshop, participation in class will be a major part of the grade. Pedagogical method : Each class will begin with the screening of a sequence or a short ﬁlm. Students are expected to be proactive and to participate to the discussions. In addition to the exercise at home and their own projects, students will also have to read other students' work and to elaborate constructive feedbacks. Course Description : Writing a script is not an end in itself, it is a step toward the creation of a movie. A script is a text that is destined to disappear after the movie is shot. Its singularity is that it must enable to visualize the ﬁlm to come. Rather than a theoretical teaching of writing technics, this course intends to offer a practical and participative approach. Each class will begin with the screening of a short movie or a sequence of a classic in order to high171
