Joshua Goldstein - Discussant For Urbanization: It's Costs, Benefits, And Complications
Joshua Goldstein teaches history at USC. Best known for his book Drama Kings, which explores the interplay between politics, society, and culture in recreating Peking Opera in late imperial and Republican China, Goldstein has been working on the history of recycling in China, including China’s processing of the world’s cast off plastics, paper, and other materials. He’s also written on health campaigns and co-edited two books on modernity in everyday life in China and on “visualizing” modern China.
