An improbable revolution: Hong Kong vs. China
March 16, 2020 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Hong Kong’s anti-extradition movement has taken the world by storm, impressing and inspiring the global public with its energy, creativity and tenacity. Ching Kwan Lee, UCLA sociologist and chair of the Society for Hong Kong Studies, analyzes three “revolutionary” moments – re-imagining community, combating violence and global city diplomacy – all in reaction to an increasingly repressive and aggressive Chinese regime. The objective is to highlight breakthroughs already achieved and envision possible challenges ahead.
A reception will be held after the talk. Cosponsored by the UCLA Asia Pacific Center.
Location: The Great Hall (directions). Closest parking will be at the Pangea Parking Structure (Pangea Drive at N. Torrey Pines Rd.) A parking permit is required and can be purchased at the pay stations.
