Material Detail

China Gateway

China Gateway

This site aims to create a basic toolkit for students of Chinese history and culture by offering select annotated entries on internet and print materials on China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Chinese diaspora, as well as learning modules and an introduction to China-related resources at Boston College and in the greater Boston community.  The "Culture and History" section in particular places an emphasis on modern society and history, offering a guide to web resources and a set of standalone tools and documentary study units (the Historian’s Toolkit.)  The study units are built around a 1929 calendar advertisement  and installments from the Dianshizhai Shanghai illustrated newspaper of the late 19th century.
