What are the roots of modern China’s remarkably rich and complex culture? Examining the time from China’s earliest societies to the end of the dynastic phase in 1911 reveals the remarkable sophistication and evolution of Chinese civilization. This 8-week asynchronous online course will explore this long period in depth. Topics include geography, belief systems, the arts, and China’s relationship with the world. Drawing from the most current scholarship, course work features supplemental readings, scholar podcasts, and web-based activities that provide the opportunity to explore student-friendly tools and resources. As a part of the course, participants will receive resources such as the sourcebook The Enduring Legacy of Ancient China as course material, free with registration.
