Cross listed with ASIA 270. 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 China's past but also, more generally, the inter-connectedness of human societies. HIST 270A will introduce students to the methods of historical practice, including primary-source analysis, historical writing, library and research skills, and public history.
