H-PRC is the H-Net presence of the PRC History Group, a network of scholars with interests in the history of the People’s Republic of China.  We define history broadly, to encompass a wide variety of disciplinary approaches, and we understand the history of the PRC to include eras prior to the official change of state power in 1949.

Re: 关于 H-PRC成员《自我介绍》的通知

诸位同仁,你们好!

二周前发出了通知,号召每一位H-PRC成员上载自己简要《自我介绍》,到目前为止已经收到二十几份,均为英文的。毫无疑问,今后我们网站的首要“通用文字”还是英文,但H-PRC这个队伍的不少成员毕竟不是来自北美或大英帝国的,甚至有个别的人觉得自己未必将英文能够“运用自如”,鉴于此情况我们今天不过想声明一下,若有哪一位成员宁愿用中文来一个“自我介绍”帖子,这完全可以,我们热烈欢迎!H-PRC是没有语言偏爱的,我们都是来自五湖四海,为了一个共同的学术目标,走到一起来的!

祝好!

What foreigners visiting Mao's China said and heard

A colleague recently asked me where, if anywhere, one might find contemporary Chinese records of visits by foreigners (including tourists, professional delegations, journalists, “foreign friends,” etc.) to Mao’s China? What he had in mind, I believe, are such things as notes on questions that foreign visitors posed (as well as on what they were told in response, I guess) while visiting this or that People’s Commune, neighborhood committee, factory, or kindergarten.

Links and Resources

Dear colleagues,

Just a brief invitation to take a stroll by the "links and resources" page of prchistory.org (http://prchistory.org/links-and-resources/), if you've got a moment, and share your thoughts concerning essential online resources that we've not yet included.  I hope to keep that section of the site a regularly updated feature, and so would be most grateful for your suggestions now or in the future.  

All best,

Matt
