China Got Big

Final Creative Project for HIS142: Traditional China

China is the one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world: and yet we know that the border of “China” and what it means to be “Chinese” have transformed dramatically at key points in its history. In this final creative project, we divided four thousand years of Chinese history into 23 periods, and student were invited to create digital maps to define the territory of China and its adjacent neighbors of each specific period.
