The 2017-18 Hu Shih Distinguished Lecture will be given by Cornell University's own Professor P. Steven Sangren on April 20, 2017. Professor Sangren is a socio-cultural anthropologist whose research focuses on Taiwan and China. His recent book, Filial Obsessions: Chinese Patrilinity and its Discontents, is a broadly framed analysis and critique of Chinese patriliny, mythic narrative, and gender ideology informed by a synthesis of Marxian and psychoanalytic perspectives.
