Professor Greg McCarthy——China in Australia: The Discourses of China Angst （需报名）
China matters significantly to contemporary Australia in terms of trade relations, capital movements, education and global order. The spectre of the rise of China haunts Australian society in and among these two spheres: one in which China’s economic rise is to be encouraged as a sign of it joining the capitalist world system, and the other in which China’s ascent is regarded as a threat to be contained. The lecture examines this problematic discourse, calling it Changst [China angst], arguing that it is permeated with a developmentalist logic that misreads China through the homogenising history of both capitalism and Eurocentrism. （报名方式见文末）
