Christopher Hughes speaks at the China Centre on 3 March 2017

This presentation discusses how militarism was used to subordinate the modern idea of citizenship to social and political hierarchy in the transition from late Qing to early Republican China. The role of Japanese militarism in this process is analysed and evidence is drawn from a combination of elite politics and education policy and materials from China and Japan. The implications of this process for Chinese politics today are also explored.
