HIST 10183 - Family in Chinese History

Course Credit: 1
FAMILY IN CHINESE HISTORY This course explores how the family function in Chinese history, from the earliest periods to the present day. We will explore the architecture and layout of the family house, and examine how the house accommodated daily activities. We will also examine the roles and duties of family members and how they negotiated the hierarchical and patriarchal/matriarchal order. Our inquiry will include rituals that marked significant transitions for individual and collective members of the family. [global, pre-1800] [C, HSS]
