Share To learn from the ancestors or to borrow from the foreigners? China’s self-identity as a modern civilisation.

Event Details

 

Within current Chinese intellectual and political debates about the future of ‘civilisation(s)’, the claim is made that China is a civilisation of five thousand years continuous duration. Concepts of the ‘nation’ and the ‘state’, once adapted from Western social and political thought, are being questioned and replaced by a distinctively Chinese idea of modern civilisation. Professor Wang Mingming (Peking University) and his respondent Professor Stephan Feuchtwang (LSE) will debate this Chinese interest in the future of ‘civilisation(s)’.
