Course Description: Drawing upon an interdisciplinary approach, this course addresses several major themes focusing on the dynamics of China’s unprecedented socioeconomic transformations. Topics covered include the implications of globalization for everyday life in the local contexts, the cultural dimensions of international business, and the rise of entrepreneurship and consumerism in contemporary China. One important goal is to provide a set of conceptual tools and a new perspective to better describe and understand the social world around us. The course encourages a critical, even “skeptical” view toward superficial explanations of take-for-granted practices by replacing common sense understandings of interpersonal interactions with an uncommon sense about the links between individual experiences, structural forces and particular marketplaces. Assessment: attendance and in-class discussion (20%), an analytical paper (40%), fieldwork assignment: in-class presentation and write-up (40%).
