On May 9 and 10 prof. Margaret Hillenbrand (China Center, Oxford University) joined ALTER members in a series of seminars in which she presented her latest research projects. Hillenbrand discussed with member of ALTER the complexity and insight afforded by concepts such as rackpicking and the precariat, and commented on the writing process of her forthcoming book, “Knowing What not To Know in Contemporary China”. The seminars were an invaluable oportunity for ALTER to discuss current challenges and trends in the field of contemporary China studies.
Many thanks for prof. Hillenbrands visit, which will be extremely useful for our research!
