This course is a course that will examine the many and different ways of being Chinese throughout the Sinophone world. The course will seek to decentre the focus usually given the People's Republic of China in most contemporary discussions of Chinese history and culture.

Through examining aspects of the histories and cultures of nations, territories, and communities such as Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, Singapore, and the diasporic communities of North and South America, Southeast Asia and Australasia, the course will serve to highlight aspects of diversity and of continuity.
