China (Part 6): The Manchus and the Qing (edX)

Created by: Delivered by:

Part 6 covers the Manchus and the Qing dynasty. China (Part 6): The Manchus and the Qing Dynasty is the sixth of ten parts of ChinaX, that collectively span over 6,000 years of history. Each part consists of 4 to 8 weekly "modules," each with videos, readings, interactive engagements, assessments, and discussion forums. There are a total of 52 modules in ChinaX.

What you'll learn:

- About the Manchus, who conquered Ming China and established the last of the imperial dynasties; their Qing dynasty would become the foundation on which modern China was built.

- How to evaluate the second, and most successful, imposition of foreign rule.

- To develop your own approaches to history and gain a critical appreciation of China’s literary, philosophical, political and cultural resources.

- To express ideas more clearly and confidently; to think more analytically and critically through the study of primary and secondary sources.
