New Series 'China Matters'

 

China Matters: Transformation Processes in the Global and the Personal Realm

 'Chocolate City', Guangzhou, Dong LIIn today’s world it is hard to overlook China’s ascendance on the global stage as it is rapidly integrating and interconnected in the global system of production and consumption. Chinese commodities and migrants have reached all corners of the globe, accompanied by a mixed reception ranging from scepticism to embrace. The coming of age of modernization of China has deeply re-oriented if not fully transformed the everyday life and selfhood of the Chinese people.

Intelligent Digital Signage in retail shopping Mall. – ShutterstockAgainst the national political ambition of developing a Chinese model of 21st century modernity seeking solutions for global challenges and local conundrums, China has become a social laboratory, where ‘newness’ is embraced and cultivated in the social, cultural and personal realms. However, given the interconnectivity of China with the rest of the world, these new developments and experimentations in China also impact other parts of the world, both the global North and South. Perhaps even more pertinently, global China serves as a social lab, mirroring the condition humaine of the 21st century with unprecedented disruption and transformation.
