DissentIssue

N. Szajnberg, MD , Managing Editor

This Spring’s Dissent issue has five articles on China — change and its discontents; its many nationalisms; women’s rights at risk; Youth and their disaffection from politics; and workers at Foxconn. These are primarily descriptive pieces, but give glimpses to the shifts in life in contemporary China.

We will be running some pieces on our teaching in Wuhan over the next few weeks, including some case conferences to give a sense of our efforts in Wuhan.
