  • Skills to analyze and understand primary sources within their historical context, particularly the writings of intellectuals wrestling with the confrontation of western ideas and technology.
  • The historiography of periodization and how one can define the modern period.
  • To develop your own approaches to history and gain a critical appreciation of China’s literary, philosophical, political and cultural resources.
