Chris Connery: “Contemporary Chinese Capitalism and Its Critical Landscape”
May 3, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm| Humanities 1, Room 210
“Contemporary Chinese Capitalism and Its Critical Landscape”
This talk draws on a work in progress entitled Revolutionary China and its Late Capitalist Fate, an analysis of the nature of post-reform China’s political economy, with particular attention to how this has affected everyday life, intellectual and critical work, ideological formation, cultural production, social movements, political action, and social space.
Chris Connery is a Professor of Literature at UCSC and Professor of Cultural Studies at Shanghai University.
