An examination of the globalisation of China, drawing on inter-disciplinary perspectives. Taught in English.
A hands-on paper examining the globalisation of China. This paper draws on socio-cultural
perspectives to familiarise students with key debates underlying the globalisation
of post-1979 China.
Topics covered include megacities, neoliberal capitalism, labour, sovereignty and citizenship, and cultural identity. A core emphasis in this paper is for students to develop employer-sought attributes, particularly the ability to apply China-related concepts to analyse real-world situations.
