!
Richard Krauss!
“it was culture, in that its most consistent targets were the arts a popular beliefs…It is tempting
to regard this raucous decade as the last and perhaps final push in a century long trajectory of
the Chinese revolution, after which China got down to the serious business of building a modern
nation”!
!
Culture should not be polluted by politics!
!
contemporary theories of culture - NEVER politically neutral!
- !
!
Why was “culture” primary to economic and technological revolution!
!
maybe marxist leanings to consciousness and then Mao saying that the culture is the reflection
of culture and society at the time. !
!
Challenges at the end of the 1800’s !
!
-fall of qing!
-Tai ping rebellion!
-opium wars and imperial conquest in China!
