Refashioning the Self Through New Therapeutics in Urban China

A new Chinese mass psychological counseling movement and its effect on China’s middle class is the subject of an upcoming lecture, presented by the Confucius Institute at the University of Kentucky Office of International Affairs titled, “Refashioning the Self through New Therapeutics in Urban China.”

Refashioning the Self through New Therapeutics in Urban China

 Zhang's lecture will address how, through a new mass psychological counseling movement, middle-class Chinese seek to refashion "the self" by turning it into an object of intense inquiry, while pursuing personal development and fulfillment through therapeutic projects centered on the notion of self-management. Zhang is a Professor of Anthropology at the University of California at Davis. This event is free and is sponsored by the Confucius Institute at the University of Kentucky.
