What is the course about?

GCHC1015 aims to provide an overview of social and cultural development in China from the 1840s to the 1940s, attempting to look at the changes and continuity in arts, music, fashion, food, travel, architecture, education as well as other everyday life’s practices in a time when Western culture exerted a growing influence on the Chinese people. While paying particular attention to Chinese people’s unique ways to respond to the inflow of Western values and lifestyle, this course also throws light on the gradual transformation of Chinese culture when traditions met modernity.
