Palladium Podcast 66: Geremie Barmé on the Lessons of Chinese Upheaval

China Pictorial/Educated students sent to the Great Northern Wilderness, 1964

Geremie Barmé joins Ash Milton to discuss his decades of experience in China and what previous upheavals in its leadership can teach us about the Xi era. Topics include his time studying alongside red guards at Chinese universities during the Cultural Revolution, Mao’s return in modern Chinese ideology, and the real heritage of neo-Confucianism.

Geremie is an Australian sinologist and author. He currently edits China Heritage and is founder of The Wairarapa Academy for New Sinology.
