Join the chair of the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, Kimberley Ens Manning, in discussion around the release of her new book The Party Family: Revolutionary Attachments and the Gendered Origins of State Power in China.

Twenty years in the making, the book is a retelling of the gendered history of politics in the People‚Äôs Republic of China and is also one of the few written about gender and politics in China over the last 25 years.

Manning will be joined by Marc Lafrance, associate professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology; Stephanie Paterson, professor in the Department of Political Science; Alison Rowley, professor in the Department of History; and Juan Wang and Erik Martinez Kuhonta, both associate professors of political science at McGill University.

This event is co-hosted by the Department of Political Science and the Simone de Beauvoir Institute at Concordia University.
