Event Details:

In the past decade alone, ten million corpses have been exhumed and reburied across the Chinese landscape. The campaign has transformed China's graveyards into sites of acute personal, social, political, and economic contestation. Join Stanford historian Thomas S. Mullaney as he introduces the cutting-edge Digital Humanities volume, The Chinese Deathscape, just published by Stanford University Press.

A reception will follow the talk.
