HIS 377 - Issues in Making Modern China

4 credits (Spring)
This course is a research seminar on Modern Chinese History, encompassing the Qing period through the PRC (1644-1997). The course benefits from the digitization of an increasing number of primary sources and archives (most in Chinese but several in English). Common readings will include works of historical theory as well as Chinese history articles and monographs. History intersects with fields as disparate as art and international politics, thus students can write a research paper on a wide array of topics.

Prerequisite: HIS 100  and any 200-level East Asian History course.
Instructor: J. Smith
