China through the Lens of Friendship Delegations in the 1970s


The UC San Diego Library is pleased to launch a new digital collection of images of early 1970s China contributed by members of the Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars (CCAS) Friendship Delegations.

You are cordially invited to a dialog and reception with CCAS delegates and contributors to the collection. The event features Paul Pickowicz, distinguished professor of history and Chinese studies at UC San Diego, and William Joseph, professor of political science at Wellesley College, sharing their experiences in mainland China engaging with students, farmers, soldiers, and government officials in the midst of a cultural revolution. A Q&A session with the audience will follow the talk. UC San Diego Professor Emeritus Susan Shirk, also a CCAS delegate of 1971, will join the program as a special guest. For more information
