Panel needs one additional speaker due to a critical presenter having to drop off the panel just prior to submission to AAS. Extremely tight window for consideration; please respond immediately if interested. Graduate students welcome and encouraged to respond to help balance the panel.
In the mythos of Chinese memory, Chairman Mao’s Great Proletariat Cultural Revolution defines the limits of ideology, exemplifying economic, political and institutional failure on a massive scale. Science and technology policy stands guilty of betraying Mr. Science aspirations for China. Of greater tragedy, these failures to support the two legs of industrial and agricultural development occurred on the heels of the disaster otherwise known as the Great Leap Forward. These conclusions of Deng modernity are self-evident—or are they? This panel assesses the tradition of the May Fourth Movement in light of the Cultural Revolution, asking whether or not the mass line served science and the people, and whether elements of China’s rise as a powerful scientifically-based industrial state can be traced to the Cultural Revolution.
