This unit introduces students to essential elements of Chinese culture and contemporary society. The unit is structured along broadly chronological lines. It begins with the early 20th century, and the development of post-imperial concepts of Chinese identity, and goes through the Mao period, with its highly ideological notions of like, subjectivity and Communist modernity, to contemporary China today, and the notion of Chinese consumer society, global China, and the transformation of post-Mao Chinese culture.
