Skrócony opis:

The course aims at exploring and understanding cultural diversity in modern China in terms of globalization. On one hand, throughout her history China presents the picture of a tightly integrated culture, reflected in the Chinese script and cultural constructs such as ‘Confucianism’; On the other hand, however, during modernization, in fact China also is a multicultural society and has de-veloped herself as a nation with enormous economic success in the 21th century. The course will explore globalization and different dimensions of cultural diversity in China today:

(1) we discuss cultural globalization and culturalism,

(2) we explore the role of religion in modern China and her reli- gious pluralism, as well as other dimensions of culture in terms of China’s demography,

(3) we de- tail the causes and the impact of the rural/urban cleavage in contemporary China, and

(4) we look at the evolving value changes across different generations,

(5) we analyze the recent results of a series of social science and psychological research on Chinese values and behavior ,

(6) we discuss some empirical evidence on Chinese culture. The course concludes with an examination of the cultural globalization and localization in China as well as a cultural preparation for doing business in China.
