March: Industry and Business

Over the past several decades, China has risen to prominence as forerunners in many industries and business sectors, including finance, agriculture, clothing and in modern times especially, technology. Whilst these traditional industries are popularly associated with the country’s ever-growing superpower image, issues such as restrictions to entrepreneurship and other routes of personal innovation continue to cause debate in the Western world and beyond.

 

April: Culture

The subject of Chinese culture can be approached from a myriad of avenues. The government’s maintenance of cultural security and national identity; the interaction of global trends and influences with local cultures; understanding driving forces behind the emergence and prosperity of China’s changing cultural industries; Western interpretations of Chinese culture, consumerism and aspirationalism; the rise of “digital democracy” and the economy of grassroots culture in China, and many more issues constitute to an exciting field of study.
