Occupying China: Tiananmen and the Lessons of Protest
Wed Jan 25, 05-09:00pm, E51-095
Enrollment limited: advance sign up required (see contact below)
Limited to 25 participants.
Single session event
The 1989 protest movement centered in Tiananmen Square convulsed China and captivated international attention. Why did it happen, what were its consequences, and what can it tell us about political change in today’s China? Does the Beijing Spring of twenty years ago offer any lessons for the Arab Spring of 2011 or America’s own Occupy movement? Participants will watch Tiananmen: the Gate of Heavenly Peace, a documentary film, share a meal of Chinese food, and discuss these questions.
