Conflict in China Panel: 1949 to Now

September 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join the Education Committee on Zoom for a panel discussion on the social and political conflicts that have driven China’s history since the 1949 Revolution to develop a stronger understanding of China today. Speakers will be from China, Europe, and the US, covering labor and feminist struggles in China since 1949, political developments, and the contemporary situation.
Speakers include:
Yige Dong, an Assistant Professor in Sociology and Global Gender & Sexuality Studies at SUNY Buffalo, who will speak on contemporary feminist struggles and the crisis of social reproduction in China.
Yueran Zhang, a graduate student in Sociology at UC Berkeley with labor activism experience in the US and China, who will be speaking on the political economy of China between the Cultural Revolution and 1989 through a labor perspective.
Chris Connery, a Professor in Literature at UC Santa Cruz, who will be speaking about political developments in China through the 1990s and into the present moment.
Ralf Ruckus, a long-time activist in social movements in Europe and Asia and author of the recent book “The Communist Road to Capitalism.” Ralf will speak on social unrest and state’s containment strategies that have been central to development of the Chinese systems since 1949.
