Xiaohong Xu Memorial Conference

Friday, May 24, 2024
8:00 AM-5:30 PM
Professor Xiaohong Xu, sociologist of politics, culture, revolution, political economy, and China, passed away on December 12, 2023. His death interrupted a period of great creativity and productivity. In his last years, Xiaohong saw several texts he had dedicated years to complete going into print and others assume form and coherence.

On May 24, almost half a year after Xiaohong’s departure, Michigan Sociology and the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies will hold a day of symposium to honor Xiaohong and showcase his original and evocative sociological thinking. The symposium will feature prominent scholars in Xiaohong’s fields, who will discuss his work in four panels, each dedicated to one of his recent contributions.

Featured speakers include Elizabeth Armstrong, Ann Lin, Mary Gallagher, Ho-fung Hung, Roi Livne, Yan Long, Stephanie Mudge, Yuhua Wang, Xueguang Zhou, Mark Mizruchi, Jonah Stuart Brundage, Nicholas Wilson, Yang Zhang, Julia Adams, Isaac Reed, Robert Jansen, Genevieve Zubrzycki, and Yang Su.
