China’s Millennials: The Want Generation with Eric Fish

November 3, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Speaker Name: Eric Fish

Tuesday, November 3, 6:30 – 8:00

Join us on Tuesday, November 3, for an Author Talk with Eric Fish, who will discuss his recently published work, China’s Millennials. In the book, Eric Fish, a millennial himself, profiles youth from around China to show how they are navigating the education system, the workplace, divisive social issues, and a resurgence in activism. Based on interviews with scholars, journalists, and hundreds of young Chinese, his engrossing book challenges the idea that today’s youth have been pacified by material comforts and nationalism. Following rural Henan students struggling to get into college, a computer prodigy who sparked a nationwide patriotic uproar, and young social activists grappling with authorities, Fish deftly captures youthful struggle, disillusionment, and rebellion in a system that is scrambling to keep them in line—and, increasingly, scrambling to adapt when its youth refuse to conform.
