Viewpoint Magazine Reading Group, Meeting 3: Socialist Construction Past and Present

+ Attending
+ RSVP!

For this meeting, the reading is "The Margins and the Center: For a New History of the Cultural Revolution" by Chris Connery (https://viewpointmag.com/2014/09/28/the-margins-and-the-center-for-a-new-history-of-the-cultural-revolution/). Sasha will introduce the piece by showing how Yiching Wu’s new history of the Cultural Revolution relates to older scholarship. What can we learn by viewing the Cultural Revolution from the margins instead of from the center? What does this new history of the Cultural Revolution say about the nature of Chinese socialist society under Mao? What does this new view of the Cultural Revolution say about reform era China?
