Out of China: How the Chinese Ended the Era of Western Domination
History matters in China today, and what matters in China matters to us all. To explain why, this talk explores China’s historic struggle against foreign interference, that took place in China itself, and overseas: in New York, Hollywood, Canberra, and London, and across the capitals of the West.
Join Robert Bickers, the writer and historian, who will discuss these momentous shifts in the world order.
Professor Robert Bickers is Chair Professor of History at the University of Bristol. He is the author of five books, including the acclaimed “Empire Made Me: An Englishman Adrift in Shanghai” and “The Scramble for China: Foreign devils in the Qing Empire”. He has been described as the ‘pre-eminent historian of China’.
