HSTY1090 - History of Chinese Civilisation
Semester 2, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Andres Rodriguez
Images of China abound, from tiny female foot to endless Wall. But what of the historical realities that shaped today's emerging superpower? What links bronze monsters, clay warriors, little red books and Shanghai skyscrapers? This unit of study introduces the 4,000-year story, both looking at big issues and making time for ordinary people's lives. Through sampling the evidence historians use to understand the Chinese past, we establish a well-grounded sense of China's political, cultural, social and intellectual history.
