Course Description: As many educators and scholars have argued in recent months, knowledge of world history before 1200 is crucial to appreciating the human experience and understanding the development of the modern world. In China, the Qin, Han, and Tang dynasties, within the time period 221 BCE-906 CE, saw the growth of China as a world power, the global networks of the Silk Roads, construction of the Great Wall, the development of ruling frameworks and schools of thought including Legalism, the Mandate of Heaven, Confucianism, and Taoism, civilization-altering inventions and technologies, and China’s Golden Age of literature and art. This seminar will explore China’s political, social, and cultural history through the examination of three of China’s most significant early dynasties: the Qin, Han, and Tang. In addition to investigating historical themes, participants will analyze exemplary curricula and share teaching ideas. Part II will be offered in January 2019.
