Chinese Historical Museum

Lecture featuring Dr. Sheldon Lou

This Saturday Lecture will feature special guest and author Sheldon Lou, who will discuss his extensive travel in China and the dramatic changes in the Chinese economic and political landscape.

His memoir, Sparrows, Bedbugs, and Body Shadows, published by University of Hawaii, tells compelling and sometimes humorous stories about his life and lives of many workers, farmers, students, teachers, and intellectuals in China from 50s to 70s, such as the crazy sparrow eradication campaign, women raped by village officials, farmers starved to death, the fascinating story of his uncle, a devoted Buddhist educated in Germany, and more. They show how ordinary Chinese lived, eventually survived, or perished, in those turbulent years, and what physical and spiritual forces led them to perform unimaginable deeds. It is important to think what we can learn from that period of the Chinese history.
