The institute will examine the turbulent dynamics of China’s transformation from a 17th century empire to a struggling 20th century nation state and a 21st century economic and geopolitical global power, emphasizing cultural continuities as well as political experimentation in an evolving and aspirational “China dream.” Week One of the program will include sessions on Chinese history, literature, and art. Week Two will include sessions on 20th and 21st century social, economic, political, and cultural transformations.
