Modern Chinese History
Statement: My research project looks at the ordinary, the everyday, and the urban as privileged sites of intervention in Maoist China. Centered on the history of the urban commune movement in Beijing (1958-62), it examines the most ambitious attempt to at the same time transform the daily practices of families and women and massively increase production.
