A Century of Chinese Children: ‘Little Friends’ in a Changing World
Tuesday, 28 January 2020, 6 – 7pm
A lecture by Dr Isabella Jackson (TCD) as part of the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival organised by Trinity Centre for Asian Studies and the School of Histories and Humanities.
Chinese New Year, like all festivals, is an exciting time for children, or ‘little friends’ as they are called in China. They can expect to receive new clothes and red packets stuffed with money, enjoy a week off school and eat copious amounts of delicious food. Children in China today are typically doted on by their families as they are usually the only child and grandchild. But how were children viewed in the past in China and how have political changes affected children? In this public lecture Dr Isabella Jackson will explore the lives of Chinese children over the past century.
