Special Topic Course: SOC 201 C – CONTEMPORARY CHINESE SOCIETIES

The course is designed for students who do not have much background about Chinese society. From a sociological perspective, we begin with an introduction on the main institutions of traditional Chinese society and investigate how these institutions have changed under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party. We then focus on the post-1978 reform period and discuss the social changes in various aspects of contemporary Chinese societies, including the economy, family, social stratification, internal and international migration, politics, and the civil society. However, this is not a course solely about China. Wherever relevant, examples will be drawn from other Chinese societies in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

***There is no pre-requisite for this course. Some knowledge in sociology will be useful, but not necessary.
