Summer 2012 Travel Study
to Beijing and Hong Kong at UCLA
Globalization and 21st Century China
July 1- July 28, 2012
Travel to Beijing and Hong Kong to understand China’s phenomenal rise in the world economy and international arena. The nation is no longer a “hidden dragon” but is amply living up to the notion that the twenty-first century is “China’s century.” The program will examine the notion that the twenty-first century is “China’s century” through the lens of urban transformation as well as people’s lives on the ground. By observing the very different paths of development in Beijing and Hong Kong, students in the program will learn about the varied economic, social, and political processes of globalization as well as the problems arising from it. The program includes lectures, guest lectures by local experts, readings, discussions, and more than a dozen fieldtrips.
The program is directed by Professor Cindy Fan, Geography, UCLA and Vice-Provost of International Studies.
