Course Description

課程簡介:
戰爭伴隨著人類文明的出現。要瞭解古代中國社會與歷史的發展,戰爭提供了一把重要的鑰匙。本課程結合考古資料與傳世文獻,一方面追尋從先秦時代以至南北朝時期集體暴力發展而為制度化的國家軍備的脈絡,另一方面探討戰爭與軍事組織對早期中華帝國的盛衰、文武關係及當時庶民社會的影響。此外,亦會透過戰爭了解古代中國文明如何與歐亞大陸上其他文化和族群開展關係。本課程的目的在於讓學員在學習古代中國的軍事與社會史之餘,能藉此反思戰爭對社會、經濟以至人類文明的影響。

Honesty in Academic Work

Attention is drawn to University policy and regulations on honesty in academic work, and to the disciplinary guidelines and procedures applicable to breaches of such policy and regulations. Details may be found at http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty/.

With each assignment, students will be required to submit a signed declaration that they are aware of these policies, regulations, guidelines and procedures.

  • In the case of group projects, all members of the group should be asked to sign the declaration, each of whom is responsible and liable to disciplinary actions, irrespective of whether he/she has signed the declaration and whether he/she has contributed, directly or indirectly, to the problematic contents.
  • For assignments in the form of a computer-generated document that is principally text-based and submitted via VeriGuide, the statement, in the form of a receipt, will be issued by the system upon students’ uploading of the soft copy of the assignment.

Assignments without the properly signed declaration will not be graded by teachers.

Only the final version of the assignment should be submitted via VeriGuide.

The submission of a piece of work, or a part of a piece of work, for more than one purpose (e.g. to satisfy the requirements in two different courses) without declaration to this effect shall be regarded as having committed undeclared multiple submissions. It is common and acceptable to reuse a turn of phrase or a sentence or two from one’s own work; but wholesale reuse is problematic. In any case, agreement from the course teacher(s) concerned should be obtained prior to the submission of the piece of work.
