This project by the University of Pittsburgh about memories of the Cultural Revoution should be of interest to PRC historians and probably a good teaching resource for all of us.
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.

We are very pleased to announce that a preview of the forthcoming issue of The PRC History Review is now available.
New Issue of The PRC History Review, Vol. 2, No. 4 (October 2017)
We are very pleased to announce that the latest issue of The PRC History Review is now available. Tani Barlow’s essay “Jiang Qing, Seriously” is the inaugural issue of a new series, “Provocations,” which offers a glimpse at in-progress research that pushes us to reconsider assumptions and established views in the field.
We hope H-PRC subscribers will contribute to this new series: we invite submissions of think-pieces, teasers for upcoming publications, and insights from ongoing research.
Fellowships and Grants in China Studies 2017-18
The Esherick-Ye Family Foundation is pleased to announce its second annual competition for small grants of up to $5,000 to support projects in modern Chinese economic, social, and political history or archaeology.
Grants will support travel to China for research or field work. Grants are available for graduate students and untenured faculty for projects on modern Chinese history and for undergraduate and graduate students as well as untenured faculty in archaeology.
I am very very happy to announce that my new book, The End of Concern: Maoist China, Activism, and Asian Studies is officially out at Duke University Press. if you are interested in Global Maoism, Asian Studies in the US, and the Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars, this is the book for you.
P.S.: I think the cover alone, which is solely the product of Duke UP's amazing design team, is worth the price of the book.
