May Fourth at 100: Intellectual Voices and the Future of China

Reflecting on the 100th Anniversary of the May Fourth Movement

Sunday, May 5, 1:00-5:00 PM
Speakers: Leta Hong Fincher, Gail Hershatter, William Kirby, Li Chenjian, Lydia Liu, Viren Murthy, Andrew Nathan, Zhang Xudong
Tickets: Students $10; Members $15; Non-Members $20
Location: 40 Rector Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10006

A diverse array of China thought leaders—including scholar Bill Kirby, neuroscientist Li Chengjian, and feminist writer Leta Hong Fincher — explores the May Fourth Movement and why it matters today. The goal is to approach this pivotal time in China’s history from a variety of scholarly and artistic perspectives.

The May Fourth Movement, which erupted throughout China’s intellectual circles in 1919, has been called “China’s Enlightenment.” It began with student protests over the Treaty of Versailles, then exploded into a national movement that rejected traditional Chinese values in an effort to strengthen the country and modernize its society.

Today, as China sustains an uneasy relationship with the West, and the government tightens control, what can we learn from the legacy of May Fourth in the context of where China is now and where it will go in the future?
