One thought on “Documentary Festival 2015 Changing China 变迁时代

  1. ‘The village self-governance’ was utterly fascinating. 很有一色。One question I have which relates to the other sessions is how much freedom of choice of marriage partner is restricted in the countryside because of poverty.
    One book I think relevant to women’s liberation in China is Christina Gilmartin’s 1995 ‘Engendering the
    Chinese Revolution: Radical Women, Communist Politics and Mass Movements in the 1920s. I think this period of turbulence more interesting than the 19thC or Republican era.
    Thanks for some interesting films and discussion – Mike Nelson, Scotland China Association.
    Anyone interested in Scottish perceptions of China might like to come to our meeting Tuesday.
    Sue Hillman, one time Treasurer of SCA Glasgow Branch and Chris Purslow, a long time SCA member, will give a talk entitled ‘Reflections – An illustrated talk on our return to PRC after twenty years’.
