Film: China's Good War - How World War II is shaping a new nationalism

Published: 12th February 2021

Professor Rana Mitter recently gave a lecture for the HA Virtual Branch where he used film and other propaganda works to explore how key events of global history are being represented in China to develop a different understanding of its own past. The talk addressed a number of the factors for this change in how China is reflecting on its own history to provide a sense of who it is in the present.

Professor Mitter is based at Oxford University and is an expert on Republican China. He has written numerous works on this and related subjects.
