A talk by Rana Mitter, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China at the University of Oxford.
Modern Chinese identity has been shaped by the experience of repeated conflict, and in particular the war against Japan in the 1930s and 40s. We will hear about ways in which Chinese identity changed because of the impact of war, including the identities of women, ethnic minorities and refugees. We then see how China's turbulent history is reflected in the shaping of contemporary Chinese identity in the 21st century.
