Curious Minds: China: Beyond the Headlines // Hot Docs at Home
From abroad, we often see China as a caricature: a nation of ruthless plutocrats and fiercely dedicated students, ruled by an autocratic Party imposing its will on the world. But the world’s largest country defies stereotypes and easy categorization. In this Curious Minds debut, Dr. Diana Fu, a dynamic young scholar at the University of Toronto’s Munk School, takes us beyond the headlines, offering a revelatory portrait of one of the world’s most fascinating countries during a moment of profound transformation. Building on years of scholarship and field work in the country, she’ll provide a highly entertaining and accessible account of China’s rise into a global superpower—and what it means for people all around the world.
Led by Diana Fu, associate professor of political science at the University of Toronto and non-resident fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC. Dr. Fu's research and commentary has appeared in the BBC, CBC, The Economist, The Globe & Mail, and The New York Times, among others. She was host of the TVO series, China Here and Now, and author of the award-wining book, Mobilizing without the Masses. She holds a D. Phil in Politics from Oxford University.
