International Historian Explores Public Speech in China

Wednesday Sep 12, 2012 7:00 PM | AVAYA Auditorium ACE 2.302

Historian Jeffrey Wasserstrom, of the University of California at Irvine, will deliver the 2012 Dr. Paul S. and Mary Ho Distinguished Lecture in China Studies. 

Wasserstrom’s talk, "Public Speech and Private Dreams in a Fast-Changing China, 1987 to 2012," is the first lecture in the Humanities Institute’s series on “Public and Private.”  The talk will draw on Wasserstrom’s many years of research in China, represented in many scholarly and general interest publications, including "Student Protests in China: The View from Shanghai" (Stanford, 1991) and "China in the 21st Century: What Everyone Needs to Know" (Oxford University Press, 2010).

The lecture is co-sponsored by the Center for East Asian Studies. More about the event...
