The course aims to provide students with the basic notions about the main social phenomena and the transformations that have taken place in China since the post-Mao period with a focus on the relationship between tradition and modernity. Through individual or group works, students will acquire skills in research methodologies and they will develop a critical approach.
The course will focus on some issues about social changes in China over recent decades that will be discussed through the analysis of the relationship between society and power and the role of the institutions. Students will participate in the debate through in-depth analysis on specific topics of particular interest useful to trace an overview of contemporary Chinese society (media, environment, politics, to name but a few).
