Wednesday, Oct. 21, 9 a.m. via webcast, book talk, “China Goes Green: Coercive Environmentalism for a Troubled Plant

UW-Madison alum (PhD, Sociology, 2016) Yifei Li and his colleague Judith Shapiro will discuss their new book, released September 2020, probing the concrete mechanisms of China’s coercive environmentalism to show how “going green” helps the state to further other agendas such as citizen surveillance and geopolitical influence.
Dr. Li will be speaking from NYU Shanghai, where he is an assistant professor of environmental studies, while Dr. Shapiro will join from American University in Washington, D.C., where she is on the faculty of the Global Environmental Politics program.
Serving as moderator of this event will be UW-Madison Professor Michael Bell, chair of the Department of Community and Environmental Sociology in the College of Life Sciences.
