Culture and Heritage in China Field School (HUMN8037)

This intensive field-based course will offer first-hand knowledge and experience of heritage management and practices in China. The main focus of the course is the development of empirical research skills associated with community-based heritage studies. The course will provide valuable opportunities for students to meet heritage officials, experts, practitioners, planners, and managers. Moreover, students will be introduced to various techniques of conducting ethnographic research including interviews, participant observation, and focus groups. Through conducting group ethnographic research, they will obtain first-hand knowledge of cultural, social and political issues surrounding cultural heritage.

Students will only be permitted to travel upon completion of ANU required documentation, including, where required, the travel to a high risk destination form and the approval of all documentation by the relevant delegate.
