The Want Generation with Eric Fish
Tuesday, November 3, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: China Institute | 100 Washington Street (Enter @ 40 Rector St.)| NY, NY 10006
Join us on Tuesday, November 3, for an Author Talk with Eric Fish, who will discuss his recently published work, China's Millennials. In the book, Eric Fish, a millennial himself, profiles youth from around China to show how they are navigating the education system, the workplace, divisive social issues, and a resurgence in activism. Based on interviews with scholars, journalists, and hundreds of young Chinese, his engrossing book challenges the idea that today's youth have been pacified by material comforts and nationalism. Following rural Henan students struggling to get into college, a computer prodigy who sparked a nationwide patriotic uproar, and young social activists grappling with authorities, Fish deftly captures youthful struggle, disillusionment, and rebellion in a system that is scrambling tokeep them in line-and, increasingly, scrambling to adapt when itsyouth refuse to conform.
