(Offered as ANTH 200 and ASLC 200) In what ways are the experiences and perspectives of people in contemporary China different from those of people in other places and times, and in what ways are they similar? What accounts for these similarities and differences? How can anthropology help us to understand China? What can the study of China contribute to anthropology? This course will help students answer these questions by reading, discussing, and writing about recent books and articles about China.
