This two-day symposium, ‘China: Birth and belonging’, starts with a curated evening of performance and is followed by a day of discussion and learning. International experts will explore the complex nature of Chinese identity, with sessions on ancient ideas of the body, individualisms, the diaspora, and contemporary biomedical ethics and science – as well as plenty of time for audience debate.
The speakers include Professor Rana Mitter from the University of Oxford, speaking on the Chinese history of conflict, and Professor Therese Hesketh from the University College London Centre from International Health and Development, who will be exploring the impact of the one-child policy.
Tickets are £30 (£20 for concessions) for the entire two-day programme, including entrance and a guided tour of the acclaimed Identity exhibition, as well as refreshments throughout and lunch.
