16:45 - SEMINAR - WUN Virtual Seminar: 'Uyghur perceptions of inequality in the context of social change in Xinjiang' : Worldwide Universities Network - Contemporary China Center videoconference More Information
This presentation examines Uyghur subjective class status in Ürümchi, China. Existing studies have identified socioeconomic status and psychological well-being measures as two major determinants of class identification. This study shows that Uyghur ethnic consciousness also affects their choices of class labels. This is partly because Uyghur ethnic consciousness is related to Uyghur-Han inequalities and Uyghurs compare themselves with Han Chinese unfavourably while defining their class positions. Data are drawn from a mass survey (N = 900) conducted in Ürümchi in 2007.

Xiaowei Zang worked in Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong before joining the University of Sheffield as the Head of the School of East Asian Studies in 2008. His research interests lie in the fields of Chinese politics, ethnicity, gender, and social networks. He has received a number of research grants from the University of California at Berkeley, Flinders University of South Australia, City University of Hong Kong, and the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong.

Professor Zang is the book series editor for Routledge Studies on Ethnicity in Asia and a member of the Editorial Boards of Sociological Focus and The Open Political Science Journal in the USA.

18:30 - PUBLIC TALK - The Composer and the Public Imagination : Power of Music Lecture Series Website | More Information
The Institute of Advanced Studies and the School of Music invite you to a free public lecture by Dr Richard Mills AM, composer, conductor, and Artistic Director of West Australian Opera.

Does the work of Australian composers have currency in the national debate? How do publicly funded performance organisations perceive the notion of creating a space and context for the production and dissemination of new Australian work? Has there been a failure of imagination by both composers and support networks in relation to the field of possibilities for the creation of new work? These and similar questions will be examined via references to the rich tapestry of musical creativity and its place in the social milieu – both in our own time and in historical contexts which may illuminate and clarify perceptions of prevailing circumstances for a working composer in contemporary Australia.

**Seating is limited and RSVP essential by 25 March to: [email protected] or 6488 1340.**

Light refreshments will be served after the lecture.

This is the first in a series of free Power of Music public lectures in 2011. Richard Mills appears courtesy of West Australian Opera.

This collection is added to each year with the winning painting from the City of Albany Art Prize.

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Everyday Life under Mao: the Chinese Revolution in the 1950s Website | More Information
A free public lecture by Professor Antonia Finnane,School of Historical and Philosophical Studies, University of Melbourne and 2011 Fred Alexander Fellow.

In Chinese history, the 1950s occupies a position not too different from its place in the history of the Western world. It was the time after the war, and the time before the storm of the sixties. People of a certain age are capable of looking back to it with nostalgia. There were no white picket fences in China, but there was rice in the bowl, a roof over the head, and an atmosphere of hope associated with national re-unification and re-building as the People’s Republic of China took shape. Or so it seems in retrospect, not least to historians concerned to salvage the reputation of the Chinese revolution from the charnel-house of the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution.

The lecture is free and open to the public, no RSVP required.
