CHSC6903 - Chinese Society

Semester 1, 2014  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Beatriz Carrillo Garcia


This unit provides a critical overview of social structures, social change and social movements in China. It examines the ways in which Chinese institutions and structures (social, cultural, economic, and political), individuals (catalysts of change such as Deng Xiaoping) and external forces interact with one another to effect social change. Conflict and cooperation between different societal actors in China are analysed in order to explain the nature of social movements and their impact on social change and stability since 1978.
