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.
Same Sex Desire & Union in China
This two day conference will explore same-sex desire and union as the theme of multiple fields of Chinese studies.
May 16 - 17
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Matthew Sommer, Associate Professor of History, Stanford University
This conference brings together scholars across disciplines, periods, and geography to discuss same-sex relationships in China from historical and contemporary perspectives. Questions of identity and social role have changed over time, as have the political, social, economic, and demographic context of sexual relations. In the era of globalization, queer politics and culture have become an increasingly visible dimension of civil society in greater China.
