A broad introduction to Chinese culture and society from an anthropological perspective. Following an overview of China’s geography and history, the course covers a range of topics pertaining to Chinese traditional culture, in­cluding marriage, family, education, governance, gender, religion, language, health, art, and music. Relies on cross-cultural comparisons to help locate Chinese culture and customs within a broader worldwide context. Also encourages students to consider the transformation (rather than elimination) of traditional cultural elements as globalization has come to play an increas­ingly important role in China’s social and economic development.
