Linda Jaivin at Griffith University: The Shortest History of China
May 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Certainly, Chinese history is sprawling and gloriously messy. The story of women in China, from the earliest warriors to twentieth-century suffragettes. Historical spectres of corruption and disunity continue to haunt the People’s Republic today.
Moreover, the world sees modern China as an economic powerhouse. As an icon of urbanisation, a propaganda state or an aggressive superpower seeking world domination. Linda Jaivin distils a vast history into a short, readable account that tells you what you need to know.
