Urban China Lecture Series featuring  Margaret Hillenbrand

April 2 @ 8:30 am 10:00 am

Speaker:  Margaret Hillenbrand, Professor of Modern Chinese Literature and Culture; Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford University

Dr. Hillenbrand’s research focuses on literary and visual culture in twentieth-century China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan, especially cultures of protest and secrecy. Her most recent book is On the Edge: Feeling Precarious in China (Columbia University Press, 2023), research for which was supported by a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship (2020-2021) and a Leverhulme Research Fellowship (2021-2023). She is now working on a new project about the cultural politics of the face in Chinese visual culture during the era of biometric surveillance.
