My Dream Country Girl: Making Citizens in Contemporary China

What are the image and qualities of a good citizen in today’s China? This talk examines the social engineering of a model citizen by the Chinese party-state which combines Confucian discourse on etiquette, the party discourse on militarisation, the communist tradition of body training, and the latest initiatives on volunteering. The talk shall contribute to the understanding of citizen making, and public culture of gender and class of an emerging global power.
