Sat 30 May - Little Emperors and Material Girls: Sex and Youth in Modern China with Jemimah Steinfeld

 Looking behind the headlines at dating, relationships, from love markets to sino-punks. Author and journalist Jemimah Steinfeld talks about the generation that have grown up under the one-child policy. Uncovering the sexual and cultural revolution taking place in the world's fastest-growing economic powerhouse. Steinfeld is a freelance writer managing the literature programme at London's Asia House and lived and worked in Beijing as a journalist for the Global Times.

'Steinfeld skilfully weaves lively accounts of her interactions with Beijing's youth with references to government policy and pronouncements, both current and in the recent past, as well as to more detailed sociological studies to produce a highlight readable book which is much more than casual journalism...'
Jane Haile, New York Journal of Books

With Jude Cowan Montague and studio guest the artist Aowen Jin
