Refeng Xueshu Volume 1
Series: Refeng Xueshu
Editor: WANG Xiaoming, CAI Xiang
Publisher: Guangxi Normal University Press
Publication Date: 2008-03


Refeng Xueshu adopts LU Xun's idea and spirit of "Refeng" to academically engage itself with the contemporary China.  It focuses on: 1) the dominant culture and the mechanism of its production in the contemporary China since the late 1980s, and 2) resources and conditions offered by Chinese histories from the 19th century to the 1970s.   The interaction between the dominant culture of contemporary China and the resource/condition set by Chinese histories has played a crucial role in the social and cultural reproduction of contemporary China.
