Book Discussion: An Ecological History of Modern China

October 18, 2023

This presentation is co-sponsored by David Lam Centre and UBC's Centre for Chinese Research.

This panel examines key themes in Stevan Harrell's new book An Ecological History of Modern China. In addition to an introduction and overview by the author, Michael Hathaway (SFU), Jack Hayes (KPU), Juliet Lu (UBC) and Guldana Salimjan (SFU) will discuss some of the many important and timely themes discussed by Harrell. In a general question-answer format with the author and panelists, we and the audience will have the opportunity to dig into modern China's ecological history, policy frameworks, and the interesting and important ways one of the world's key political, economic and environmental systems have developed since the early 20th century.
