The second event since the inception of the CCS Annual Conference in 2012, this international conference will provide a platform for scholars to examine multiple dimensions of socialist cultural production in twentieth-century China. This conference has been organized by Xiaobing Tang, Helmut F. Stern Professor in Modern Chinese Studies at the University of Michigan and a faculty associate of CCS.
Participants from across the US, China, Canada, Germany as well as New Zealand will present their current research on many topics and objects, ranging from film to dance to literature and visual arts. They will look into the various institutions, theories, practices, models, and global connections that sustained cultural production of the socialist era, a time period far more extended than the decade of the Cultural Revolution. The goal is to gain a better understanding of not only a highly complex and experimental period of history, but also the competing forces shaping contemporary Chinese society and culture.
