This course will introduce students to Chinese culture and its diversity through examination of the traditions and evolving identities of the Chinese people. By considering what China was like in the past, what continues to influence it, what has changed, where the forces of its influence are coming from and how they have impacted Chinese society, students will be able to draw a more accurate and nuanced picture of China and truly understand its people. The course will combine classroom lectures and discussions with field trips and direct interactions with Chinese people. Can also be registered under HST 300.1.
