Virtual Branch Lecture Recording

In this lecture Professor Mitter uses 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 addresses 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.
