Globalization and 21st Century China

Travel Study- Summer 2012; Beijing and Hong Kong

This program offers courses for East Asian Studies and International Development Studies and is open to all majors.

Travel to Beijing and Hong Kong to understand China’s phenomenal rise in the world economy and international arena. The program will examine the notion that the twenty-first century is “China’s century” through the lens of urban transformation as well as people’s lives on the ground.  By observing the very different paths of development in Beijing and Hong Kong, students in the program will learn about the varied economic, social, and political processes of globalization as well as the problems arising from it.  The program includes lectures, guest lectures by local experts, readings, discussions, and more than a dozen field trips.

Directed by Professor Cindy Fan, East Asian Studies/Geography, UCLA.
