The past matters in China today as never before. This talk explores the foreign impact on the nineteenth century Chinese empire, a tale largely forgotten overseas, especially in Britain, but always close to the surface in China itself.
Speaker Professor Robert Bickers, University of Bristol, is the author of the prize-winning Empire Made Me: An Englishman Adrift in Shanghai and The Scramble for China.
