10 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module aims to provide students with a basic introduction to contemporary Chinese culture and society. It does this by exploring some of the key areas and themes which define culture and society in China today. These include national identity, values and beliefs, religious traditions, the family and education. Students shall also be introduced to some of the basic academic debates on Chinese culture and society (ranging from what it means to 'be Chinese' today, to the rise of consumerism in China over recent years), and shall discuss these during seminars.
