Description

China has a long history and yet has undergone a series of drastic social transformations in the contemporary era. The magnitude, pace, and tumultuousness of these changes and surprising continuities alongside them raise many challenging questions. This course takes a historical and global perspective to understand the social dynamics of contemporary China, with a focus on political economy as well as major social institutions such as family, work, education, religion, and cultural practices. Understanding the dynamics of social changes in China, including its changing relationship with a changing global scene, is crucial to both advance social scientific knowledge and informed public discussion. This course examines social changes in contemporary China, with this broad vision in mind.
