What are the deep-seated traditions and far-reaching changes that have shaped China? What makes the country modern, and when did “modern” China even begin? This three-day seminar will seek to answer these and related questions by examining the social, cultural, and political traditions and transformations in China from the late Ming Dynasty through the present day. Specific topics of study and analysis will include the Ming-Qing transition, China’s interactions with the West, the Taiping and Boxer Rebellions, the formation of the Republic, and the birth and influence of Communist China. Along the way we’ll explore the flourishing of arts and culture, daily Chinese life, the changing roles of women, the growth of the global Chinese diaspora, and China’s emergence as a superpower in the 21st century.

Especially for 8-12 educators.
