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.
This volume focuses on understandings and analyses of histories and experiences of socialism.  In recent two years the study on issues in the 1970s and the 1980s has been very popular in academia, so the volume tries to understand these studies—e.g., who study and how to study—and attempts to respond to those issues concerned through analyses of memories about these periods from the perspective of the “marginal” and practices in the everyday life.
