Course Description

本科旨在討論清末民初至二十世紀四十年代「普通人」的涵意、形象與日常生活的演變。這個時代是整個社會政治理論改變的時代:原有的由皇帝達至鄉村的禮儀改變為由政府達至城市。曾經被視為禮儀中心的鄉村被邊緣化,曾經佔據正統地位的價值被視為迷信,而另一套新的生活方式則開始代表社會的風尚,城市在這個風尚中成為進步的象徵。在這個新舊交替的年代,個人、家庭、國家,甚至於語言、性別都經歷了重新定位以及塑造的過程,這個過程至今仍在繼續,你我都是其中的創造者與被創造者。歸根究底,這門課就是希望能討論你我都置身其中並習以為常的社會是如何從清末演變而來。

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.
