The course will offer students an intensive introduction to the historiography of modern China, mapping out key theoretical frameworks, methodologies, and influential contemporary scholars. Over the past four decades, the study of China has changed as dramatically as China itself. Unprecedented access to Chinese archives, the growth of PhD-granting Chinese history programs worldwide, and a host of formidable new approaches and methodologies have fundamentally changed, deepened, and diversified our study of Chinese history. Owing to this sometimes dizzying diversity, never before has our understanding of modern China so required us to develop a holistic understanding of Chinese historiography as well.
