HISTGC01, An Interdisciplinary Approach to China: Health and Humanity (2016-17)

Lecture times: Wednesdays 11am1pm
Location: Room G01, 16–18 Gordon Square (unless otherwise stated),

The Core Course is a twenty-hour module taught in two hour slots throughout the first term. The lectures will be delivered by specialists in different fields critical to the interdisciplinary understanding of health. Some of the lecturers will be China specialists. Others, such as experts in global health and geriatrics, will be leaders in their field. The second hour will be held in seminar style with presentation and discussion of relevant secondary literature in English and Chinese as it relates to China.

The educational aim of the Core course most closely reflects the aims of the overall programme for MA Chinese Health and Humanity. That is, the students will develop expertise in a range of approaches to health and well-being. With each session split into two parts with a taught element and a seminar element, the course invites immediate application of each of the approaches modelled to health in China and the impact of China on health around the world, historically and in the present day.

Preparation for the seminars will require a substantial amount of research and reading, and the seminars themselves will encourage student participation with rigorous presentation and analysis of evidence according to individual disciplines. The students will learn to integrate disciplines in the research and analysis of their chosen subject.
