MUS 450 Professor Heckert Elaine Chen 05/08/2017 Chinese Musical Nationalism in the 19th and early 20th century Abstract Before the Revolution of 1911 China was a mighty empire dominated by various Chinese ethnic groups in different time periods. In particular the Han people of the Tang and Ming Dynasty and the Man people of the Qing Dynasty were keen to establish and maintain contacts with the western visitors while retaining a strong political influence over the Chinese culture. When missionaries and explorers traveled to the Chinese empire they came along with fine commodities made using the foreign crafts and technologies to the Chinese emperor as a sign of good respect and good faith. This is fuelled by the adverse changes experienced by China from a strong and powerful empire to a weak and torn country colonized by the foreign powers during the 19th and early 20th century.

The attached document is the chosen topic for my research paper--- Chinese musical nationalism in the late 19th century (with my professor's feedback). I need at least six sources of bibliography in 24 hours (just a list of citations), and a 12 pages research paper due in 8 days. Since this is for a music history class, the paper should be focusing on how history shaped or affected music and how music reflected the history.
