The University of California Humanities Research Institute will host a two-week Seminar in Experimental Critical Theory (SECT) in Shanghai this summer entitled Designing China. A debriefing seminar will take place as part of Ancient Paths, Modern Voices to reflect upon the outcome of the summer institute –focusing on China as a case study where design issues are raised in perhaps their most problematic and provocative form. The panel consists of two leading artists from Beijing in conversation with faculty from the University of California: musician, composer and novelist Liu Sola of the “Class of 1978”, noted artist Liu Dan, together with Ackbar Abbas of the University of California, Irvine and Achille Mbembe of the University of California, Irvine/University of Witwatersrand.
