Joel Andreas, Associate Professor of Sociology, Johns Hopkins University

4:30pm - 6:00pm | Room 200, Perelman Center for Political Science and Economics, 133 S. 36th St.

In this book talk, Professor Andreas recounts the tumultuous events that have shaped and reshaped authority relations in Chinese factories over the past seven decades. He introduces a general theoretical framework, involving industrial citizenship and autonomy, designed to analyze workplace authority relations in China and other countries around the world. He also provides a fresh look at the evolution of industrial relations as well as larger political and social changes in China since 1949.
