Book Launch & Panel Discussion — What is Chinese history good for?
May 4, 2021 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm Australia/Canberra
Book Launch & Panel Discussion — What is Chinese history good for? by Australian Centre on China in the World
Certainly, some people turn to Chinese history for clues to China’s present. Others look to it as the missing piece in the puzzle of world history. That’s the way it’s typically taught in the west. And still others find joy simply in exploring topics ranging from the intellectual and cultural life of Chinese cities in dynastic times to the stories of China’s first feminists, the origins of Daoism, or even the history of history in China itself.
Finally, The Shortest History of China (RRP$24.99) is available for purchase at the book launch. Buy a copy and have it signed by Linda Jaivin. Payment method: cash, credit card or debit card.
