The 21st Century China Center is premiering a new web series: "China Throughlines" - featuring UC San Diego’s China historians in conversation with their colleagues on the echos and connectedness of China’s storied past to the twenty-first century.
In this audo excerpt from the pilot episode, Paul Pickowicz interviews Perry Link, esteemed cross-disciplinary China scholar and translator of the Tiananmen Papers. The memory of the tragic and pivotal date of June 4th 1989 or simply 六四, is still the subject of intense debate, censorship, and protest - especially in Hong Kong.
