This week’s guest is Rowena He, associate professor of history at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and currently a fellow at the National Humanities Center. She’s an expert on contemporary Chinese history and the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. Professor He’s writing and commentary appear regularly in the popular press, and she will be joining the University of Montana community on April 13 as part of the President’s lecture series.
In this episode, Professor He talks about how the Tiananmen Square massacre changed her life, and the lives of many in her generation. Justin asks about the risks Professor He has had to take, and she talks about the trend of radicalization across the world.
