Speaker: Jane Perlez, 2019 Joan Shorenstein Center Fellow, Beijing Bureau Chief for The New York Times.
Moderator: Lucy Hornby, 2020 Nieman Fellow, Deputy Beijing Bureau Chief for the Financial Times.
Long before she was Beijing bureau chief for The New York Times, Jane Perlez was an accidental tourist at the peak of China’s Cultural Revolution. Join us as she screens rare footage and talks about her impressions of a 1967 trip to Shanghai and cities around China, when Red Guards turned China upside down.
