GCHC1036 Tackling Popular Misconceptions about Chinese History and Civilization (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This course adopts a query-based approach and will guide students to tackle a number of existing influential misconceptions about Chinese history and civilization. Common misunderstandings on traditional Chinese manners and customs, political practices and institutions, agricultural and commercial activities, and religions and philosophy will be chosen for discussions. It is expected that after completing this course, students will be able to tell what common people knew about China is wrong and that much more sophisticated understandings can be achieved by means of historical inquiries.
