Western discourse on topics related to China can digress to geopolitical struggles and challenges associated with the country’s recent and relatively quick rise to prominence on the world stage. In this featured presentation of Asia Week, noted scholars Judith Farquhar (Anthropology) and Yuen Yuen Ang (Political Science) will discuss areas of innovation in Chinese culture, economics, and politics that often get overlooked in explaining Chinese resilience and achievement.
