Speaker: Jason M. Kelly, Ernest May Fellow in History & Policy, International Security Program

This seminar will explore the paradoxical phenomenon of commercial ties between Mao's China and international capitalism during the founding years of the People's Republic of China. By bringing this overlooked dimension of communist China's early foreign relations to light, this seminar offers key historical context for understanding China's "rise" today and its implications for the future of international order and stability.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
