Sobre o curso

This course of Chinese Culture and Contemporary China will explore the foundations of Chinese civilization and the dimensions of Chinese culture. It will pay particular attention to the relationship between Chinese culture and the present-day life of the Chinese people and to the different elements of the culture which are under the present social structures, belief systems, literature, arts, customs, etc. The course aims at providing students with a deeper knowledge of Chinese culture, thus enabling them to better understand China. The course will cover the following main areas of topics: (1) the foundations of Chinese civilization: its geography, language, and history; (2) the core concepts in Chinese philosophies and religions: Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism; (3), literature and arts, including Chinese calligraphy, painting, Tang poetry, and classical fiction; (4) society and life, including education, the role of women, Chinese food, and traditional holidays; (5) travel and landscapes, including well-known Chinese cities, mountains, ethnic regions and customs; (6) Chinese media, culture and sports, including TV and movies, fashion, Chinese gongfu and taiji. In addition, students will be expected to participate in a buddy program beyond curriculum if they have a chance to come to Nanjing. Ideally they will be paired up: an international student with a Nanjing University student to allow students to learn firsthand about Chinese customs, culture, and language. Students will be required to complete various projects and homework assignments as well, which will encourage them to use Nanjing University and the city of Nanjing as a laboratory to apply what they learn during their stay at Nanjing University....

Very interesting and comprehensive, covering the key aspects of Chinese culture in a very short time frame. As the instructors mentioned, this isn't an exhaustive study on Chinese culture but rather a means of piquing the interest of people and it has certainly done a good job!

I loved getting to know more about Chinese culture. This course has inspired me to take other courses that are more focused, as well as pick up some books on dynasties and Chinese folklore so I could dive deeper into some of the topics in this class especially the Tang dynasty.

Great source of a brief acquaintance with Chinese culture reflected in people's daily reality. Loved visuals. I suggest peer graded assignments (or making participation in discussions mandatory for course completion) & extra reading + images sources and credits added.

Un curso muy interesante para poder profundizar un poco más en la cultura china, a mí la parte que más me ha gustado ha sido la de la cultura y tradiciones chinas. Sencillo de hacer pero a la vez sientes que aprendes y es muy curioso.

I thought the course was great. However, I would have liked to see some relevant texts or excerpts for the students who are interested in learning more in depth about the topics discussed in this course. Thanks! I enjoyed it.

Very much enjoyed this class, and agree with the teachers that each section is just a small look into the culture. Each small look, however, has made me interested in delving more into Chinese culture on my own. Thank you!!

a very short intro to things a Chinese person would know but also take for granted, I do enjoy the indepth explanation behind why the customs are the way they are in this short intro course from Nanjing University!

It is an excellent course and sheds light particularly on the comparatively neglected facets of any culture. Would recommend this course to anyone interested in understanding and appreciating Chinese culture.

Muy buena información ya que incluye y abarca varios temas relevantes y se enfoca tanto en el pasado (explicación) y cómo se conserva hoy en día o los cambios por los que ha pasado, así como su relevancia.

I liked the course despite being well summarized because the Chinese culture is huge but the good thing is that it fostered the desire to research more about the topics presented.

Very nice brief introduction to Chinese culture, rather for newcomers, definitely not for 6 weeks (more likely one longer afternoon), but I definitely liked it. Thank you!

I have been studying Chinese since 2012, but I still did not know many things about this beautiful culture. Very well done, clear and interesting.
