Three Frontiers of China: An Introduction to Tibet, Xinjiang, and Mongolia

"Frontiers" have held a critical geopolitical and cultural place in Chinese history, as in American history, and figure significantly in contemporary China's domestic policies, world view, and global relations. This four-part webinar/discussion course offers an interdisciplinary introduction to images and realities of three traditional "frontier" regions--Xinjiang, Tibet, and Mongolia, considering histories, cultures, national government policies and current tensions and issues.

Required and suggested readings as well as a required discussion forum for each topic; required books and other materials will be provided.
