China: Traditions and Transformations
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Modern China presents a dual image: a society transforming itself through economic development and social revolution; and the world’s largest and oldest bureaucratic state, coping with longstanding problems of economic and political management. Both images bear the indelible imprint of China’s historical experience, of its patterns of philosophy and religion, and of its social and political thought.

In this free Chinese studies online course, these themes are discussed to understand China in the modern world and as a great world civilization that developed along lines different from those of the Mediterranean.

This unit explores the commemoration of war through treating two war memorials - the Sandham Memorial Chapel and the Royal Artillery Memorial - as 'visual texts'.

It does this through consideration of such factors as the location of the monument; its function and purpose; its symbolism or realism; use of materials and overall form.
