China has a long and storied history and, although we tend to think of China as a timeless, unchanging society, it was in fact subject to currents of radical historical change as any other place. In this series of courses we will follow Chinese history over four terms stretching from antiquity to the present exploring these torrents of change. The first part of this course will cover Chinese antiquity to the early imperial period (c. 2000 BCE-220 CE), beginning with mythology and legends, then the Shang (c. 1600-1046 BCE) and Zhou (1046-256 BCE) kingdoms, and finally the first two empires – the Qin (221-206 BCE) and the Han (206 BCE-220 CE) empires. These periods were foundational in building the concept of China and creating a shared identity. We will trace in detail the vicissitude of political, social, religious, technological, ideological, cultural and philosophical changes.
