The Shortest History of China: Linda Jaivin at Australian Centre on China in the World (ACT)
Some people turn to Chinese history for clues to China’s present. Others look to it as the missing piece in the puzzle of world history as it’s typically taught in the west. And still others find joy simply in exploring topics ranging from the intellectual and cultural life of Chinese cities in dynastic times to the stories of China’s first feminists, the origins of Daoism, or even the history of history in China itself.
Benjamin Penny will moderate a panel including Esther Sunkyung Klein, Yayun Zhu and Linda Jaivin that will launch Linda’s newest book, The Shortest History of China.
Date: Tuesday 4 May
Venue: Australian Centre on China in the World Auditorium, Building 188, Fellows Lane, Canberra, ACT 2601
Price: This is a free event.
