Intergenerational family relations played a central role in the Chinese transition from empire to nation-state, according to Mara Yue Du, assistant professor in history. In a live, hybrid Chats in the Stacks book talk, Du will discuss her latest book, State and Family in China: Filial Piety and its Modern Reform (Cambridge University Press, 2022). This book focuses on family law, parent-child relationships, and the evolution of the Chinese state, tracing how the state-sponsored parent-child hierarchy of the Qing dynasty gave way to the reforms of filial piety law that became the basis of state-directed family reform in the Republic of China.
This book talk is sponsored by the Kroch Asia Library. Light refreshments will be served.
