About this Course Modern China presents a dual image: a society transforming itself through economic development and infrastructure investment that aspires to global leadership; and the world's largest and oldest bureaucratic state, with multiple traditions in its cultural, economic, and political life. The modern society and state that is emerging in China bears the indelible imprint of China's historical experience, of its patterns of philosophy and religion, and of its social and political thought. These themes are discussed in order to understand China in the twenty-first century and as a great world civilization that developed along lines different from those of the Mediterranean. The modern period of ChinaX explores China’s transformation from empire to nation; its dramatic encounter with the era of imperialism; the rise of alternative models for a modern China; and the prospects for Chinese leadership in the 21st century. ChinaX makes the riches of Harvard's collections and the expertise of its faculty accessible to learners worldwide. We will engage intellectual and religious trends, material and political culture, the local diversity and the national unity, art and literature, and China’s economic and political transformation— past, present and future. This is the tenth of ten ChinaX "Mini-Courses" that collectively span over 6,000 years of history. Each mini-course consists of 4 to 8 weekly "modules," each with videos, readings, interactive engagements, assessments, and discussion forums.
Two Weeks New Year Celebration | to End Today in China
Larry Herzberg, a professor of Asian language and literature at Calvin College, and his wife Qin, traveled through China, interviewing educators, government officials, migrant workers and intellectuals to absorb their insights about the Chinese standard of living, the one-child policy, democracy and religious oppression. China Today, produced by the Calvin Media Foundation, is a series of conversations with Chinese people from a range of backgrounds on some of the more troublesome issues of their culture.

Chinese government policy on Christianity has changed from "suppression" (1949-1966) and "eradication" (1966-1979) to "controlling to weaken" (1979-1995) and "controlling to contain" (1995-2010). The number of Protestant Christians has multiplied from fewer than 1 million in 1949 to 30 to 60 million today. Catholic Christians have persevered as well. In addition to Christians in rural areas, several new categories of urban Christians have emerged, including the so-called "cultural Christians," "boss Christians," transnational Christians, Christian lawyers, and Christian artists. A leading expert on Christianity in China based at Purdue University, Fenggang Yang argued that the fundamental reason for Christianity's growth in China is its perceived compatibility with modernity. During the rapid modernization process, Christian beliefs, rituals, and organizations appear to meet the economic, political, social, and cultural needs of the people. Unless China abandons her endeavor of modernization, he argued, Christianity will continue to thrive in the foreseeable future. Fenggang Yang is Professor of Sociology and Director of the Center on Religion and Chinese Society (CRCS) at Purdue University. He is also a Commissioned Scholar on China for the Christianity and Freedom Project at the Berkley Center. A leading scholar of religion in China and of immigrant religion in the United States, he is the author of Chinese Christians in America: Conversion, Assimilation, and Adhesive Identities (1999), Asian American Religions: The Making and Remaking of Borders and Boundaries (co-editor 2004), and State, Market, and Religions in Chinese Societies (co-editor, 2005). His Religion in China: Survival and Revival under Communism (Oxford University Press) is forthcoming with Oxford University Press. Yang received his Ph.D. from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.
This film is directed by Evan Luchkow, a Canadian who ties the 300-years history and culture of the Manchus people with today’s northeast China. Much of northeast China has transformed into an industrial zone, but in some remote villages, the ancient Manchus culture continues to thrive. In a documentary format, Luchkow travels through Changchun, Jilin Province and later to a small remote village on the Songhua River. He interviewed an elderly man who trained eagles and another elderly woman who’s a teacher and hobbyist of Manchu paper-cutting. The film is most effective, when the narrator stays silent and allows the people interviewed to talk and tell the tale of their lives.

China is on its way to becoming a socialist world power. After a time of revolution and reform, the country is entering a new era. As President Xi Jinping forges the path forward, a question remains: will the Chinese people continue to support him? At the Chinese Communist Party’s convention in fall of 2017, President Xi Jinping sent a clear message to the world: China is entering a new era. Many believe President Xi Jinping has brought the party back on track and has secured the support of the Chinese people. Speaking to delegates in October, Xi said it was time for the nation to be a global leader that could set an example on economic, political and environmental matters. Part of his plan for economic growth is Made in China 2025, an initiative that draws from Germany’s Industry 4.0 plan and aims to make advancements across many industries, including automotive, aircraft, pharmaceutical, and artificial intelligence. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

With the reform and opening-up, China has created unprecedented economic progress. At the same time, its international relations have become more sophisticated and diversified. And of course, there have been sacrifices and trade-offs along the way. How can we evaluate and draw lessons from the 40 years of China’s re-engagement with the world? Is there such a thing as “China’s Road”? If so, what is it? And where will it lead us?
