This course begins from issues that are
personally relevant to young people – mate
choice, love, marriage, sex and family – with a
view to helping them think about the historical
and cultural roots of values concerning love,
sexuality, marriage and family life in China.
In particular, this course will examine the
profound transformation in Chinese values,
lifestyles, norms, and desires, from Maoist
utopianism to reform-era hedonism, which was
brought about by market reforms and the
opening of China.


This course enables students to understand how
love, sex and marriage constitute a useful lens
for understanding Chinese culture, thoughts,
values, and ways of life so as to provide a
glimpse into the complex interconnections
between political, cultural, economic and
interpersonal realms of experience.
Students will acquire basic tools of sociological
analysis through an introduction to theories such
as sociological approaches to love, marriage and
the family, second-wave feminist theories,
critical and queer theories, and cultural theories
of identity politics and globalization.
