(CHIN, EAST, WGSS)
CRAFT OF HISTORY: BODY IN CHINESE TRADITION The course will focus on the physical body and its somatic experiences as ways to think about the social, cultural, medical, religious and literary worlds in China. Besides examining the corporeal body, we will also explore the various ways in which the body in Chinese history has been described, represented, and interpreted. As a HIST 201 course, this seminar is a practical introduction of the critical skills of the historian - including the analysis of primary sources, historiography, historical research and writing, and historical argumentation. Prerequisite(s): 1 course in History or permission of the instructor. [C, HSS, W]
