With China’s rapid economic development since Mao’s death in 1976, China has become an increasingly complex and dynamic society. How can we integrate China into our teaching and situate China in a global context? This course explored political, economic, social, and cultural themes in China’s recent past and present (1949-today) with an emphasis on pedagogical approaches for the classroom.
