Event description
Join us for food, drinks, and a talk by Amy Qin, China correspondent for the New York Times.

About this Event

Drawing on her reporting for the New York Times’ “China Rules” series, Amy will take us beyond the headlines to understand how politics, culture, and society meet in today’s China. We are often presented with a monolithic view of China, one that focuses primarily on the CCP and its omnipresent influence and tightening grip over Chinese society. Yet these stories often fail to adequately capture the complexities and contractions of daily life. From the female sexual education teacher, to a Tibetan filmmaker, and even rappers in Chengdu—Amy will discuss how 70 years of CCP rule have reshaped life and decision-making for average Chinese citizens. How are Chinese citizens creating autonomy and opportunity within a landscape of deepening political control? What should Western observers understand about the profound contradictions in the relationship between society and the state?

The event will take place on July 30th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Building located at 1779 Massachusetts Avenue NW.
