2019 marked a number of significant anniversaries for the People’s Republic of China, each representing different ‘Chinese dreams’. Please join Yearbook editor Jane Golley and authors Gerald Roche, James Leibold and Jane Brophy to discuss some of the many dreams, illusions, aspirations and nightmares that co-existed (and clashed) in 2019 in China and beyond. After introducing the book’s key themes, Golley will focus on the challenges facing the Australian university sector amidst rising US-China tensions, while Leibold and Roche will discuss Tibetan attitudes to urbanisation, as revealed through three Tibetan pop songs. Brophy will introduce the Chinese scientist who helped bring to term the world’s first genetically-modified babies, along with a story about two Inner Mongolians infected with the plague in November, evoking a recurring nightmare with historical, environmental and authoritarian dimensions.

Date: Thursday 2 April 2020
