HIST 281 - Ethnicity and Nation

Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4SS, CD

While often seen as a long-unified state and culture, this course explores China as a diverse and multiethnic society shaped by tensions between the hegemonic drive of the state’s nation building and the multiplicity of human experiences, histories and ideological and social realities. Topics include Turkic and Muslim populations; Tibet’s historic relation to China; the spread of Han population and cultural practices into ‘minority areas’; and transnational connections with Southeast and Central Asia.
