This course explores the economic, social, and political change in China in the reform era since 1978. Discussion topics include economic reform, migration, class, gender, ethnicity, environment, and civil society. While the course focuses on the reform era, it also considers the legacies of the Mao era (1949-1976). Readings, lectures, and discussions will not only highlight macro-level processes of various change and continuity in the Chinese society but also examine the impact of these changes and the experiences of individuals involved in these processes.
