CCCH9027-China's Ethnic Groups: Assimilation or Cultural Pluralism?


China: Culture, State and Society


Few countries in the world have a total population that exceeds the 110 million ethnic minorities in China. What does this mean for China’s rise in the 21st century? As the income gap between Han Chinese and ethnic minorities widens, the centuries old debate over values, identities, and cultural heritage intensifies. China’s rise will be determined by how well it governs the ethnic lands that occupy half of the country and 90 percent of its border. In short, the future hinges on being able to integrate diverse cultural groups, a challenge for any multi-ethnic states. What will happen to China’s 55 culturally diverse minority groups? This course uses basic data and current information to examine the central theoretical question: What social processes occur when people of different ethnic groups come together in a rapidly rising China?
