|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject explores the history of 20th century China through a study of the issues of modernity and modernisation, which lay close to the heart of various nation-building projects embarked on in the course of the century. Changes in political organisation, material culture and understandings of self and community are traced from the end of the Chinese empire through the sequence of 20th century revolutions to China's entry into the WTO in the era of globalisation. At the end of the subject students should have an understanding of recent Chinese history in light of theories of modernity.
