The Chinese diaspora can be found in nearly every corner of the globe today. Although Chinese emigration accelerated under what came to be known as “globalization” in the late 20th century, in fact the global movement of Chinese people is not a new phenomenon. This course will use both internal migration and global immigration as a lens for understanding China’s development, politics, and society more broadly. In focusing on the period from the mid-19th century to the present, we will see that the movement of Chinese people has both shaped, and been shaped by, colonialism, the global economy, and international politics.
