GCHC1017 Gender Issues in Imperial Chinese History

This course provides us with the basic knowledge on gender issues in imperial Chinese history such as concubinage, foot-binding, and so on. Specific topics like marriage, education were presented by students in tutorial lessons every week, so that we can have a better understanding on different issues. The content is interesting because we could see how history would look different if a gender perspective is added. Also, it was fruitful as various topics were covered and different case studies were analysed. The lecture notes were well-prepared and the lecturer is friendly and professional. There were interaction between students and the lecturer as the lecturer always encouraged us to discuss and think more. I recommend this course because it lets us re-examine history with a gender perspective, and express our views towards gender issues.
