This talk is based on Professor Lei's forthcoming book, The Gilded Cage: Technology, Development, and State Capitalism in China (Princeton 2023). Since the mid-2000s, the Chinese state has increasingly shifted away from labor-intensive, export-oriented manufacturing to a process of socioeconomic development centered on science and technology. Ya-Wen Lei traces the contours of this techno-developmental regime and its resulting form of techno-state capitalism, telling the stories of those whose lives have been transformed—for better and worse—by China’s rapid rise to economic and technological dominance.

Our current capitalist system is jeopardizing the future of the planet. How can we create the coalitions capable of moving us towards an ecofriendly solidarity society? In this talk, we will explore the priorities of the powerful, the mistaken theories that justify their hegemony, and the alternative world views that are firing the imagination and efforts of feminists and other activists to bring about transformative change.

China was the world’s leading superpower for almost two millennia, falling behind only in the last two centuries and now rising to dominance again. What factors led to imperial China’s decline? The Rise and Fall of Imperial China offers a systematic look at the Chinese state from the seventh century through to the twentieth. Focusing on how short-lived emperors often ruled a strong state while long-lasting emperors governed a weak one, Yuhua Wang shows why lessons from China’s history can help us better understand state building.
