Over the last decade, the understanding of China’s socialist history and in particular the Maoist period has profited from both, the introduction of new approaches and the accessibility of new sources. This workshop covers new aspects of China’s cultural, social and political history from the formation of Maoism in the early 1940s to the immediate post-Mao period in the 1980s. It is part of a workshop series which facilitates the exchange between researchers of the University of Freiburg and the University of Nanjing (PRC) and supported by the Freiburg-Nanjing Center for Modern China Studies.
