You are invited to Chinese Studies Forum #8 featuring anthropologist Dr. Jing Xu from University of Washington. 

About the Talk: How do we become moral persons in specific historical-cultural contexts? How does social environment and psychological mechanisms together shape children’s earliest moral experience? This talk presents a story of moral development across time and space, based on ethnographic fieldwork in two projects, from early 2010s Shanghai to mid-20th century rural Taiwan.

About the Speaker: Jing Xu is an affiliate assistant professor of Anthropology at the University of Washington and a NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellow. Through the particular lens of children’s moral development, her work examines education, family, and morality in contemporary China, martial law-era Taiwan and cross-cultural comparative contexts. She is the author of The Good Child: Moral Development in a Chinese Preschool (Stanford University Press, 2017).
