讲座题目：The Evolutionary Feminism of Zhang Kangkang and the Developing Dialogue between Darwinism and Gender Studies
内容概况：This transcultural and transdisciplinary speech will first introduce the meeting by chance, the similarities and congeniality, between evolutionary feminism and Chinese feminist ideas, especially those expressed by Zhang Kangkang (a contemporary Chinese woman writer, 1950- ). It will then continue to illuminate the particular social phenomena in China – Chinese families with “illegal” children born outside of the birth control policy – again through an evolutionary lens. The studies draw specifically from evolutionary psychology, evolutionary anthropology, gender studies, family sociology, and Chinese studies.
