If you are looking for a Fall course to fulfill your Social Sciences or Electives category in Asian Studies, look no further than Dr. Penglin Wang's new offering, ANTH/AST 348, Contemporary China. This online course is designed for all students interested in anthropology, sociology, political sciences, Chinese studies, Asian studies, business, and world cultures to approach contemporary China from the anthropological perspective. It covers topics such as general situation, family, marriage, citizenship, community institutions, work, religion, ethnicity, education, popular culture, gender, social class, rural-urban inequalities, gender, and social change. It also considers China’s imperial past, the social and institutional legacies of the Mao Zedong era, and the momentous forces shaping it in the present.
