Explore the modern history of China from the rise of Maoism through the Cold War to its emergence as a global superpower. There will also be visits to some of the world’s most legendary ancient sites.
The program begins in the city of Beijing which provides the backdrop to 3,000 years of Chinese history and development. Continue to the walled city of Xi’an, home of the Terracotta Warriors and imperial dynasties. Travel to Nanjing to learn about the foundation of Republican China and the tragic events of 1937. The tour ends in the bustling city of Shanghai, which contrasts the old world with a modern-day metropolis.
This carefully planned program will be escorted by an experienced tour manager and include a series of background lectures, guided tours, on site visits with experts and workshops. There is the chance to engage in collegial discussions of best teaching practice and enhance pedagogy.
