Ying Bao, Assistant Professor of Chinese Literature/Culture at Univ. of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Focusing on the production and discourse of the “socialist new comedy” in the late 1950s and early 1960s, this lecture shows how film comedy as a genre has been constantly redefined and reinterpreted aesthetically and ideologically during the Mao era.

“Conflict and Violence in China’s Minority Regions: Is There a Way Out?”

The last five years have been among the most violent and tense
in parts of China’s minority regions since the Cultural Revolution.
The Chinese government has increased security measures against what it
calls the “three evils” of international terrorism, ethnic splittism,
and religious extremism. What’s behind the rise of ethnic activism,
particularly in Tibet and Xinjiang? Are government policies easing or
exacerbating tensions? Is there a peaceful solution to ethnic strife
in China or will tensions continue to rise?
