-  HIST 270A: This course explores the history of China in a global context. We will begin our journey with the Mongol empire in the thirteenth century and conclude with some reflections on the most recent past. Our goals are two-fold: to introduce students to important critical skills, especially as they are related to the practice of historically-informed analyses; and to encourage students to reflect on not only the global dimensions of Chinas past but also, more generally, the inter-connectedness of human societies. In 2020W, HIST 270A is cross listed with ASIA 270. Students should register in HIST 270A.
-  This course will involve both synchronous and asynchronous learning. To accommodate students in different time zones, the weekly scheduled session on Tuesday will be split into two 80-minute sections (15:30-16:50 and 17:00-18:20). Before the start of Term 1, registered students will be given instructions via email on how to sign up for their preferred weekly 80-minute synchronous section. If the class is fully subscribed, interested students may join the waitlist by contacting the instructor @ leo.shin@ubc.ca
