The Road to Sleeping Dragon: Learning China from the Ground Up
Date: Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Time: 4:00-5:30pm
Location: Grace Ford Salvatori Hall, GFS 116
Free, RSVP here.

About the Book
In 1995, at the age of twenty-three, Michael Meyer joined the Peace Corps and, after rejecting offers to go to seven other countries, was sent to a tiny town in Sichuan. In the last book of his China trilogy, Meyer tells a story both deeply personal and universal, as he gains greater - if never complete - assurance, capturing what it feels like to learn a language, culture and history from the ground up. Both funny and relatable, The Road to Sleeping Dragon is essential reading for anyone interested in China''''s history, and how daily life plays out there today.

About the Author
Michael Meyer first went to China in 1995 with the Peace Corps. The winner of a Lowell Thomas Award for travel writing, Meyer has also won a Whiting Writers' Award for nonfiction and a Guggenheim Fellowship. His stories have appeared in the New York Times, Time, Smithsonian, Sports Illustrated, Slate, the Financial Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Chicago Tribune. He is the author of In Manchuria and The Last Days of Old Beijing.

Screening: We the Workers
Date: Monday, October 9, 2017
Time: 5:00-6:30pm
Location: Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, ASC 204
Space is very limited. RSVP required here.
About the Film
Shot over a six-year period (2009-2015) in the industrial heartland of south China, a major hub in the global supply chain, We the Workers follows labor activists as they find common ground with workers, helping them negotiate with local officials and factory owners over wages and working conditions. Threats, attacks, detention and boredom become part of their daily lives as they struggle to strengthen worker solidarity in the face of threats and pressures from the police and their employers. In the process, we see in their words and actions the emergence of a nascent working class consciousness and labor movement in China. The film was part of the 2017 International Film Festival Rotterdam and other festivals. The film was directed by Huang Wenhai 黄文海 and produced by Zeng Jinyan 曾金燕;。The screening will be followed a Q&A with Han Dongfang, founder and director of the China Labour Bulletin.

The USC U.S.-China Institute presents a talk by Lenora Chu, whose new book explores what takes place behind closed classroom doors in China''s education system. Chu''s eye-opening investigation challenges assumptions and considers the true value and purpose of education.

Little Soldiers: An American Boy, a Chinese School, and the Global Race to Achieve
Date: Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Time: 4:00-5:30pm
Location: Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, ASC 204
Free, please RSVP here.

About the Book
In the spirit of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, Bringing up Bébé, and The Smartest Kids in the World, a hard-hitting exploration of China''s widely acclaimed yet insular education system-held up as a model of academic and behavioral excellence-that raises important questions for the future of American parenting and education.

When students in Shanghai rose to the top of international rankings in 2009, Americans feared that they were being "out-educated" by the rising super power. An American journalist of Chinese descent raising a young family in Shanghai, Lenora Chu noticed how well-behaved Chinese children were compared to her boisterous toddler. How did the Chinese create their academic super-achievers? Would their little boy benefit from Chinese school?

Chu and her husband decided to enroll three-year-old Rainer in China's state-run public school system. The results were positive-her son quickly settled down, became fluent in Mandarin, and enjoyed his friends-but she also began to notice troubling new behaviors. Wondering what was happening behind closed classroom doors, she embarked on an exploratory journey, interviewing Chinese parents, teachers and education professors, and following students at all stages of their education.

What she discovered is a military-like education system driven by high-stakes testing, with teachers posting rankings in public, using bribes to reward students who comply, and shaming to isolate those who do not. At the same time, she uncovered a years-long desire by government to alleviate its students'' crushing academic burden and make education friendlier for all. The more she learns, the more she wonders: Are Chinese children-and her son-paying too high a price for their obedience and the promise of future academic prowess? Is there a way to appropriate the excellence of the system but dispense with the bad? What, if anything, could Westerners learn from China''s education journey?

Chu's eye-opening investigation challenges our assumptions and asks us to consider the true value and purpose of education.

Recalling Kings: Ritual, Royal Identity, and Historical Consciousness in Early China
Thursday, October 05, 2017
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Bunche Hall 10383
Talk by Nick Vogt, Indiana University Bloomington

The kings of the Western Zhou period enjoy unparalleled status as classical Chinese culture heroes, thanks largely to their role in the Confucian canon. Core Confucian texts purported to capture this expertise, and through them, figures such as Kings Wen, Wu, and Cheng of Zhou helped set the paradigm for Chinese imperial history.

However, over the last few decades, a much finer-grained picture of Zhou ritual and its multivalent role in the development of early Chinese kingship has emerged. With the help of Western bronze inscriptions, royal ritual can now be tied to the historical specifics of Zhou geopolitics, clarifying the circumstances that drove changes in the ideological framing of the Zhou royal identity.

This presentation explores one aspect of this rediscovered intellectual diversity: the tie between ritual, royal identity, and historical consciousness. It traces how the Western Zhou kings strategically deployed ritual practices in narratives of kingship and allegiance to the Zhou, promoting a ritually embedded model of history which nonetheless accommodated changes in the relationship between religion and the state. With examples from manuscripts, it shows how extra-canonical recollections of those practices drove diverse Warring States visions of the balance between royal power and sacred authority. Along the way, it proposes an answer to the question: Why does ritual loom so large in the study of early Chinese history?

Nick Vogt’s research focuses on the cultural and religious history of early China, with an emphasis on the connections between identities, objects, and ritual practices. Nick is Assistant Professor of Early Chinese History in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, School of Global and International Studies, Indiana University Bloomington.
