The Problem of Discipline: ‘Shanghai’s Child Labor Problem,’ 1922-1925
Speaker: Margaret Tillman (Purdue University)

This seminar will examine efforts to abolish child labor, not only to benefit the working class, but also to modernize the Chinese economy by enforcing industrial discipline. While scholars have noted some of the political reasons for the failures of child labor legislation, this seminar will attempt to conclude by placing these efforts in a longer-term historical perspective regarding social welfare movements.

Date and time: Monday 03 December 2018, 5pm-6.30pm

Venue: Rm G3, SOAS, University of London, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG

All welcome but registration required. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
