The world’s leading professors explain the latest thinking in the humanities and social sciences in just 10 minutes.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, in Asia as well as Europe. Today's China is drawing on its collective memory of the war against Japan to shape its politics at home (including "victory over the virus") and abroad, as it seeks to reshape international order in Asia. This talk explains what happened during World War II in China and why it matters so much for the politics and society of that country today.
Speaker: Professor Rana Mitter FBA, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China, Director of the University China Centre, University of Oxford
