Tenzin Jinba ─ China Dream: Whose Dream Anyway?

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

5 p.m.

Joukowsky Forum

Reception to follow

This talk is intended to provide a window onto the intricate state-society relations in China by inquiring into the way in which domestic sociopolitical environment and international status quo inform the idea of China Dream as well as the reason why it is embraced by the general public. It will particularly look into the resilience of the Chinese Party-state system and its capacity to evoke the consensus of the society despite the fact that various scales of collective resistance and widespread popular indignations towards corruptions and other social problems in China appear to be destabilizing the Party-state structure.

Tenzin Jinba is a professor of anthropology and sociology, Lanzhou University and research fellow in the program in Agrarian Studies at Yale University
