Over the last 20 years Chinese urban residents...including the new arrivals from the countryside have experienced profound economic and cultural changes. Using case histories, participant observation, and national survey data, Professor Davis explores the ways in which men and women have responded differently to the new "rules of the game" for intimacy and family formation.
The language of the remarks will be English. The language of the Q&A session will be Chinese and English.
