Contemporary China Research Seminar (21179). 3 units. Research and writing on contemporary problems related to China, including but not limited to legal issues. The class will meet roughly six times during the semester to discuss particular China-related issues (occasionally with a guest) and at the end of the semester for student presentations of their research. The remainder of the semester the students will work on their research and writing projects and individually meet with the instructors to discuss their work. Students interested in the seminar should submit a statement of interest explaining their background related to China and research ideas they are considering. Paper required. Enrollment limited to ten. Permission of the instructors required. P. Gewirtz, S. L. Han, G. Webster, R.D. Williams.
Note: Although this is primarily a research seminar, we will meet as a group 6 or 7 times during the semester. We expect that the usual meeting time will be on Wednesdays from 2:10-4:00pm, but that meeting time has not been completely finalized.
Course Bidding: In addition to listing this course among permission-of-instructor selections, students should submit a statement of interest by the close of bidding at 4:30 pm on December 10. The statements should include an explanation of your background related to China and research projects you are considering.
