LSE Gender Institute & ESRC Public Lecture Desiring China: Experiments
in Neoliberalism, Sexuality and Public Culture
Date: Wednesday 12 December 2007
Time: 6.30pm
Venue: Hong Kong Theatre, London School of Economics and Political
Science, Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE
Speaker: Professor Lisa Rofel
Chair: Professor Diane Perrons
Lisa Rofel is a Professor of Anthropology at the University of
California, Santa Cruz.

In Desiring China (Duke University Press, 2007), Lisa Rofel focuses on
the role of public culture in shaping the creation of 'desiring
subjects ' suited to the dramatic reconfiguration of China's
relationship to a post-socialist/neoliberal world. Rather than
assuming Chinese people are reverting to a 'naturalised' understanding
of human nature, she considers how neoliberal subjectivities are being
created through the development of various desires with respect to
consumption, work and sex, and how Chinese people are negotiating what
it means to become cosmopolitan citizens in the post-Mao era.

Lisa Rofel, was trained in East Asian History at Brown University in
the 1970s and Cultural Anthropology at Stanford University in the
1980s. She has written extensively about China based on many years of
ethnographic research and consistently brought feminist, postcolonial
and Marxist poststructuralist approaches to bear on questions of
modernity, postsocialism, capitalism, desire, queer identities, and
transnational encounters.
Her publications include: Desiring China (Duke University Press,
2007), and Other Modernities: Gendered Yearnings in Post-Mao China
(University of California Press, 1999).
This event marks the close of the ESRC seminar on Gender, Work and
Life in the New Global Economy.
This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is
on a first come, first served basis. For more information, email
