    Beschreibung "In this thesis I will explore the figure and configuration of women in twentieth century Chinese cinema. I begin my investigation by establishing a more general understanding of how the cinema, as a structure of modernity, functions in relation to the formation of modern subjectivity, sensibility, and everyday life. I then narrow my investigation to the evolution of the cinema in the specific context of twentieth century China. In so doing, I establish how the evolution of the cinema and the figure and configuration of women developed in relation to the forging a new national identity. Through a discussion of the 1920s nüxiapian subgenre, New Woman (1935), and Song of Youth (1959), I trace the development of the figure of women in the cinema through major periods in modern Chinese history, thus, exposing the ideological investment in specific representations. My investigation reveals the political, and not merely sexually political, implications of the representation and circulation of the figure of the woman in modern Chinese culture."
