Student Profile

PhD and MA students

In this course, students will read and discuss selected archival materials that illuminate key political, economic and social transformations in modern Chinese history. Through close examination of under-researched sources, such as declassified government documents on controversial campaigns and policies, students will not only gain a deeper understanding of these historical developments, but also acquire essential skills needed to conduct future independent research in local Chinese archives on a variety of topics. The course will be taught in Chinese. Coursework will involve oral presentations in Chinese as well as written analysis of archival sources in Chinese or English.
