HIST 009A. Premodern China

In this introductory survey, we will explore the iconic themes of Chinese history, including Confucianism, footbinding, and the imperial system. Our goal is to trace the rise and fall of successive dynasties, shifting social hierarchies, and the traffic of goods and people that underpinned the transformation of China's social, political, and cultural order in the premodern era.
