A food safety factory shutdown has Americans hunting for baby formula. Readying themselves for a covid-19 lockdown, Chinese in Beijing emptied store shelves. Emerging from lockdown, some in Shanghai are visiting well-provisioned markets. U.S.-China agricultural trade is booming, but many are still being left hungry. Food security, sustainability and safety remain issues.
Organized Knowledge and State Socialism, 1949-1978
UC Berkeley presents a workshop investigating knowledge production during the Maoist period (1949-1978) of the People's Republic of China.
Workshop: Center for Chinese Studies
Knowledge production means the forms of cultural, social, and political work that create those systems of knowledge recognized as legitimate in a particular social context. Participants will seek to illustrate the uniqueness of Mao era institutions, ideas, and identities as well as their connections across China’s long twentieth century. Organized by Professors Eddy U (UC Davis), Robert Culp (Bard College), and Wen-hsin Yeh (UC Berkeley), this workshop will include international and U.S. participants from a range of disciplines.
