I also thought of Mark Selden and today decided it was easiest just to ask... but the answer is not conclusive!
Hi Sigrid, The name is one of the variants of mine and the subject is not so far from what I do. Though I don’t recall three pieces on rural mechanization. Hope you’re well. mark
Might I ask if anybody knows of any scholarly works that discuss the 反苏运动 in Chongqing in early 1946? (http://baike.baidu.com/link?url=NFQJBs-Le_3jwR57N7h4J_l2D8mIAKs7lmyOGsQgWDRZh2IBOOtG-I9fxR...)
I thought 马克•赛尔顿 had to be Mark Selden (just phonetically) but the description Michael provided does not seem to match with the actual person. I don't think Mark was writing about rural mechanization in 1973. He had gone to China with CCAS for the first time in 1972.
I am emeritus in the History Department at Eastern Connecticut State University, where I taught Chinese, Japanese, and modern world history. I did my graduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studying with Mauri Meisner and Lin Yü-sheng. My research is in modern Chinese intellectual history, much of my work focusing on the thought of Liang Shuming. I am particularly interested in the imagination of the countryside and its relation with the city, in conceptions of time, and in issues of the moral sources of social solidarity, engaged from a comparative perspective.
With apologies for cross-posting.
Dear List Members,
My name is Cai Chen (陈彩). I am a first-year PhD in Chinese Studies Reseach in Lau China Institute in King's College London. My first supervisor is Dr. Jennifer Altehenger, and Dr. Simon Sleight is my second supervisor.
My dissertation is about higher educational institutions in the city of Qingdao(Shandong Province) during the 1960s, which would focus on the connections between the educational system and the political and social system, the local history and the national and transnational history.
According to Carl Davidson's website, he claims to have traveled to China (and Cuba) with the Guardian. The information can be found be clicking the link "Glory Days."
By the way, thanks for posting this material on here. I also work on Americans in the PRC and I don't believe I know of some the individuals you have listed thus far.
And 卡尔•戴维森 could be Carl Davidson, former SDS member and then of the Guardian. I cannot find evidence he did go to China, though.
