Upcoming USC China Institute Events in January & February

When Canadian authorities arrested Huawei Technologies Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou in December, they were acting at the request of the U.S. prosecutors investigating whether the tech giant had violated U.S. sanctions against Iran. That probe was prompted by a series of articles by Steve Stecklow, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter with Reuters.
Please join Asia Society Southern California and the USC US-China Institute for a discussion with Stecklow about a case that encompasses key issues in the complex relationship between Washington and Beijing:trade, high technology and national security. The arrest of Meng, who is also the daughter of Huawei's founder, underscores the stakes. Huawei has risen to become the world's second-largest telecommunications-equipment maker - a key player in building digital infrastructure for the global economy. Her arrest has heightened tensions between China and both the U.S. and Canada. Ottawa says that China has since detained 13 Canadian citizens. What's more, the friction over Chinese high-technology sales extends beyond Huawei. Stecklow's reporting has also led to about $2 billion in fines levied by the U.S. against Huawei's fellow telecom-equipment maker ZTE.
Steve Stecklow joined Reuters in 2012 after 18 years at the Wall Street Journal, where he shared a Pulitzer Prize in 2007 for a series of stories on stock-options backdating by U.S. companies. Based in London, he has long reported on Asia, and his recent investigations include stories on how Facebook failed to combat hate speech in Myanmar, how Iran's Supreme Leader secretly controls a multi-billion-dollar corporate empire, and how Western and Chinese technologies are used by repressive regimes to crack down on dissidents.

One of the most influential modern Chinese writers and the author of Lust, Caution, Eileen Chang passed away in Los Angeles in 1995. Her works, considered to be among the best Chinese literature of the 1940s, examined the themes of marriage, family, love, and relationships in the social context of 1930s and 1940s Shanghai. After her death, Dominic Cheung, Professor Emeritus at USC, took care of her sea burial in San Pedro and set up the Eileen Chang Special Collection in the East Asian Library at USC in 1997. Cheung will discuss these experiences as a part of the lecture series titled Los Angeles and Shanghai:The USC Nexus.

Talk of populism is everywhere these days, but the recent boom in comparative populist research has focused almost exclusively on developments in electoral democracies. This talk will explore the possibilities of bottom-up forms of populism under conditions of authoritarianism. Drawing from a nationwide survey conducted in August 2018, Eaton will make the case that a popular populism is alive and well in one-party China. 

Sarah Eaton is Professor of Chinese Society and Economy at the University of Göttingen and concurrently Director of Göttingen's Centre for Modern East Asian Studies. She holds a PhD in Political Science from the University of Toronto and held previously faculty positions at the University of Oxford and the University of Waterloo.

Co-sponsored with the USC Center for International Studies.

Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for a book talk with journalist and author Leta Hong Fincher. Betraying Big Brother is a story of how the feminist movement in China against patriarchy could reconfigure the country and the rest of the world.

Through interviews with the Feminist Five and other leading Chinese activists, Hong Fincher illuminates both the difficulties they face and their "joy of betraying Big Brother," as one of the Feminist Five wrote of the defiance she felt during her detention. Tracing the rise of a new feminist consciousness now finding expression through the #MeToo movement, and describing how the Chinese government has suppressed the history of its own feminist struggles, Betraying Big Brother is a story of how the movement against patriarchy could reconfigure China and the world.
