The Radical Practice Of “Hanging Out”: China’S University Student Dissidents, Kyle Chong 2019 University of Puget Sound

The Radical Practice Of “Hanging Out”: China’S University Student Dissidents, Kyle Chong

Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice

This interdisciplinary paper advances existing empirical research on the longevity of anti-state university student protests in the People’s Republic of China. This paper contributes ethnographic data from Beijing and Fuzhou university students to yield a Marxian critique of Chinese authoritarianism. This paper asserts that empowering identity development and subversive scholarship, or the use of critical scholarship to transmit critical consciousness of political injustice, in Chinese universities creates more durable resistance against Chinese authoritarianism. This paper concludes that methodological and tactical shifts can similarly sustain American student protest.
