Summary:" This website has been developed from a 2001 summer course at Central European University, Budapest, taught by eight scholars: Frank Dikötter, Prasenjit Duara, Penny Edwards, Dru Gladney, Alexandre Lomanov, Aihwa Ong, Louisa Schein, Zha Daojiong, and Pal Nyiri. All of them, from different perspectives, challenge the boundaries of China and its study, but believe that area studies have a role to play if their geographies are problematised. The site shows the multiplicity of critical but sound research approaches that can be used in studying a society. It centres on an anthropology-centred but boundary-breaking approach to studying "the techniques of being human" (Ong) that neither trivialises nor dismisses the elusive effects of culture; one that sees both the level of the state and the multiplicity of voices that challenge it. The approach rests on three legs: (1) close observation (of social behaviour, text, language etc.); (2) historical embedding; (3) social theorising." (self description)
