Orville Schell has written ten nonfiction books about China, and has written extensively about China for The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Nation, Foreign Affairs, and The New York Review of Books. My Old Home: A Novel of Exile (2021) is his first work of fiction, exploring life in Cold War China through the story of a father and his son. This webinar will commence with a discussion of legacies of China’s Cold War past in Chinese domestic and foreign policies today, before exploring the prospects for China’s relations with the world after Covid-19. Audience members will be invited to ask questions.
This event is co-hosted by the Manchester China Institute at UoM & the Dukakis Centre at ACT.
