Course DescriptionThis course explores the challenges associated with climate change, energy, and environmental policies from multiple perspectives, disciplines, and scales. It provides an in-depth insight into what happened across the globe and particularly in China after Trump retreated from the Paris Agreement. Students will be trained to examine the evolving science and policy of climate change, tussles among big global emitters regarding commitments and responsibility, and the conflicts between energy giants and interest groups in China. Parallel to that, China’s energy and environmental policies will be scrutinized in the context of global and domestic politics. Through various case studies, students are encouraged to grasp the nature of China’s national development strategies and the risks and challenges the country is facing in implementing its “green policies”. At the same time, students will be expected to apply theories of IPE while conducting analyses.

Course DescriptionThe city of Shanghai is like a vibrant living body. Looking down from a height: the criss-cross road is like an artery, dividing the city into several specific areas; small passages formed a community, which are densely covered with the whole city like capillaries. For these small passages and lanes, locals in the Jiangnan region calls it “Li-Long”. But one thing makes Li-Long famous in the world is because of the rise of a large number of early-modern Li-Long Residential Buildings. Therefore, this course aims to discover the culture and hidden stories of Shanghai Li-long through an architect, landscape architect, and urban designer’s perspective, highlighting the conservation and renovation of Shanghai regional culture.
