"Maoish China": Julia Lovell Next Tuesday Jan 26 at 12:30!
How does an understanding of the 27 years of Maoist rule, including its program to export Maoist ideology worldwide, help us to understand the current global situation? Julia Lovell (Birkbeck College, University of London) won the Cundill Prize for best historical writing for her 2019 book Maoism: A Global History, a work that reviewers have found "indispensable" and "revelatory." In this talk, Lovell will discuss the legacy of Maoism today--in China and beyond. The Zoom Webinar event, sponsored by the Political Economy Project, is free and open to the public.

After the attack on the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, Profs. Doug Irwin (Economics) and Linda Fowler (Government, Emerita) decided to mount an impromptu PEP book group on some of the Federalist Papers that might shed light on how to think about these events. Hear them discuss their idea!
Prof. Cory Smith (PEP Postdoctoral Fellow, Economics) discusses his reading group on Tonio Andrade's book The Gunpowder Age: China, Military Innovation, and the Rise of the West in the Winter of 2021. He will conduct the group remotely on Zoom, from Pakistan.
