Lend me your minds a moment - I'm trying to come up with a title for a freshman seminar course I'll be teaching next semester via our Political Science department. Should be broad enough to cover all the random soundbites I'll be covering in the class (call it a pointillist portrait of China), but register soundly under the umbrella of political science.
Actual Topic: Everything I think America's little white kids should know about China that they wouldn't be exposed to otherwise.
Actual Content: Whatever the hell I want, once a week.
Course Titles In The Running:
The Political Environment of Modern China
Culture and Politics in Contemporary China
Titles That Actually Draw Enrollees:
Crowd-Raising Titles I Haven't Yet Thought Of:
So. I'm sort of serious here, although the crazier your suggestions, the higher my likelihood of running into something that hasn't yet crossed my mind.
