Guided Reading in Chinese HMC403


This unit has been discontinued.


Students must apply to the unit coordinator or Head of School for permission to enrol in this unit.


The aim of the Guided Reading seminar is to expose students to a range of important texts which have contributed to the field of Chinese studies. The texts chosen may or may not be relevant to your thesis topic, but may also be useful in helping you decide on an area for research when it comes to deciding on a thesis topic. Reading of texts in Chinese may be required.
