Seminar: Gender and Ethnicity in China

December 11, 2015 - 09:15-12:00

Forum for China Studies at Uppsala University


China has undergone huge social and economic changes during the last 35-40 years, changes that have influenced people’s lives immensely, in some ways to the better, in some for the worse. There are also significant differences between Han-Chinese areas and minority areas. 
In this seminar we want to give a picture of how the concepts and questions concerning gender and ethnicity have been influenced due to the societal changes and how they are dealt with and discussed in today’s China.
