Twenty-five years have passed since the tragic events of June 4th, 1989. In the context of continuing suppression of public discussion about “The Tiananmen Incident,” these events remain shrouded in secrecy within China and poorly understood abroad. This one-day symposium will bring together international experts to explore various dimensions of this grave moment in reform-era China.
We are bringing together many of the world’s leading authorities on Tian’anmen, including Rowena He (Harvard University), Wu Guogang (University of Victoria), Chang Ping (journalist and author), Louisa Lim (University of Michigan), Jackie Sheehan (University College Cork), Patricia Thornton (University of Oxford), Frank Pieke (Leiden University) and Felix Wemheuer (University of Cologne).
