China (Part 7): Invasions, Rebellions and the Fall of Imperial China - Harvard University

  • This portion binds the latest world happenings. The downfall of the Qing is dismal yet inescapable given the conditions happening inside and outside. This would likewise prompt China experimenting with political frameworks other than Imperialism, which are examined in part 8 of the arrangement.
    |
  • This Part bargains predominately with the eighteenth and nineteenth century when the world was changing quickly through industrialization, innovative progressions and quickly propelling military desires. It turns out to be all the more obvious that this course truly needs to skim the surface which it does well yet sadly a lot more could be said and instructed in regards to this period that it appears to be deficient to address such a large number of key occasions in China's history so delicately.

China (Part 7): Invasions, Rebellions and the Fall of Imperial China is the seventh of ten parts of ChinaX, that collectively span over 6,000 years of history. Each part consists of 4 to 8 weekly "modules," each with videos, readings, interactive engagements, assessments, and discussion forums. There are a total of 52 modules in ChinaX.

Parts 6 - 10 make up China and the Modern World, taught by Professor William C. Kirby. Parts 1 - 5 make up China: Civilization and Empire, taught by Professor Peter K. Bol.

  • An overview of modern Chinese history; learn about Qing’s forced re-encounter and engagement with the West and its ideas and technology, the impact of imperialism and dynastic decline, culminating with the fall of the Qing dynasty.
  • 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.
