HIS S340M (85645) /ANS S340M (82125) MODERN CHINA Professor Huaiyin Li Office: GAR 3.202 GAR 1.126 Office hours: MTWThF 4:00-5:00 p.m. MTWThF 2:30-4:00 pm Phone: 475-7910 Summer 2011 Email: [email protected] This course surveys the emergence of modern China from the nineteenth century to the present, covering the Qing dynasty, the Republic (1912-49), and the People’s Republic (since 1949). Beginning with a review of the intellectual, economic, and sociopolitical traditions in imperial China, it examines the rise of nationalism and the challenge of modernization in the midst of dynastic decline and foreign threats in the nineteenth century. Its coverage of the twentieth century emphasizes the struggles between the Nationalists and Communists for making a modern state and their experiments of contrasting political schemes. Finally, the course examines recent changes in the post-Mao era, focusing on economic and political reforms as well as China’s ongoing integration into the global system. Required Readings
