PhD Candidate in History Yasser Nasser Publishes, "Making Friends and Making ‘Asia’: Sino-Indian Friendship, 1947–1957"
The Department of History's Yasser Nasser was recently published in Past & Present. His article, "Making Friends and Making ‘Asia’: Sino-Indian Friendship, 1947–1957," draws on a rich collection of sources across numerous countries. Yasser argues that by invoking both China and India's colonial past and dreams of a shared postcolonial future, the India-China Friendship Association (ICFA) and its backers in the Indian state promoted Sino-Indian friendship as the blueprint for a peaceful, decolonized Asia capable of creating a better world.
The Department of History's Yujie Li was recently published in Twentieth-Century China, a refereed scholarly journal that publishes new research on China’s long twentieth century. Yujie's article, "Birth of the Phoenix: Petty Capitalists in the Socialist Transformation of the Shanghai Bicycle Industry," explores the technological dimension of Shanghai’s socialist transformation. It does so through a case study of the bicycle industry, tracing the industry’s standardization and consolidation from the early 1950s to the 1960s.
