What is the course about?

Focusing on major intellectual movements in the last hundred years, including the Chinese Enlightenment, the rise of socialism, nationalism, the Cultural Revolution and the great reform since 1978, GCHC1025 aims to trace how twentieth century Chinese intellectuals respond to social, political and economic changes by critically reviewing Chinese culture and by integrating Western cultural elements into the traditional worldview and ways of life. Special attention will be given to the contributions of leading Chinese thinkers, and their works and theories which have lost little of their influence in 21st century China.
