INDS 120 Inside the People’s Republic of China

This course introduces the complex interaction between traditional culture, communist thinking, and the forces of modernization in the People’s Republic of China. The practices and characteristics of distinct Chinese subcultures are examined by traveling to representative areas: Beijing in the north, Kunming in the southwest, and Guangzhou on the southeast coast. Students meet with government officials and business people, attend arts performances, visit a factory, hospital, and university, and attend supplemental lectures.
