Saturday, 9/18 (3:00 p.m.): Conflict in China: 1949 to Now panel discussion (Zoom)
The DSA SF Education Committee would like to invite you to a panel we are hosting called Conflict in China: 1949 to Now. This will take place Saturday September 18 at 3pm pst.
We’ll be hearing about how social and political conflicts have been the motor of Chinese history and how these developments have created changes in China since 1949. Speakers will be from China, Europe, and the US, covering labor and feminist struggles in China since 1949, political developments, and the contemporary situation.
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. Here is a recent article from New Left Review.
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.
