This talk focuses on a controversial historical figure in modern Chinese history and a political campaign that has left a rich legacy to China: Mao Zedong and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in 1966. The talk will examine the major social, economic, and political forces that shaped the history of China in the 1960s.
Besides introducing and critically evaluating the relevant primary sources and secondary scholarship on Mao Zedong and the Cultural Revolution, Professor Wang will share with the audience his personal experiences of living in the People's Republic of China for more than 30 years, and of surviving the Cultural Revolution, thus encouraging them to develop new perspectives of Mao and modern China.
