Friday, March 27, 2009 - 8th Annual Philip Thomas Lincoln, Jr. Memorial Lecture in Chinese Studies

China in War and Revolution: Conversations with Eyewitnesses
Paul G. Pickowicz

Distinguished Professor of History and Chinese Studies
University of California, San Diego

Professor Pickowicz served as associate producer of two PBS two-hour films and conducted virtually all of the oral history interviews that were used. The first film was released in 1989 and the second in 1994. These films remain the gold standard for college classroom use. He will discuss how these films were made, how controversial archival footage was acquired, and how interview subjects were selected. He will also show clips of three particularly memorable sequences and discuss the conflicting emotions they evoke.

This annual lecture is sponsored by the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures and is made possible by the generous gift of the late Mrs. Philip Thomas Lincoln and Family.
