This case study introduces students to the problems of ethnic diversity in China, a modern nation-state that is normally thought of and taught culturally as monolithic. By introducing students to the wide diversity of identity within one nationality, they are exposed to the ethnic complexities as well as to the larger issue of ethnic pluralism in modern nation-states. Perceptions regarding other societies are challenged and broadened.
