About the Talk
In this talk, Dr. Rachel Murphy (bio) will examine transformations in China due to inter-related processes of industrialization, urbanization, demographic transition, and marketization.
Moderated by Dr. Yao Lu (bio), this discussion will draw from Murphy’s ongoing book project about children of rural-urban labor migrants in two rapidly-urbanizing interior provinces.
This event is part of the 2018-2019 Policy and Society in Contemporary China Lecture Series, cosponsored by the China Center for Social Policy and Weatherhead East Asian Institute, and supported by the School of Social Work, the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, and Columbia Global Centers | Beijing.
