International Security Studies continues its Spring 2024 Colloquium Series with a presentation by Hao Chen, a Henry Chauncey ‘57 Postdoctoral Fellow in the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy. He will present, “The Bandung Moment: China’s Engagement and Taiwan’s Resistance, 1955–1957.” This chapter focuses on how China and Taiwan responded to the Bandung moment in their competition for ‘representational legitimacy.’ Under the leadership of Premier Zhou Enlai, as assisted by Ambassador to Indonesia Huang Zhen, the PRC delegation exercised the principles of ‘peaceful coexistence’ and ‘searching for common ground’ both conditionally and selectively catering to its interests and need in deepening a ‘Third Force’ position of Afro-Asia.

Chen completed his PhD in History at the University of Cambridge. He specializes in twentieth century international history of East Asia, with emphasis on China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong in the post-1945 period. He previously held visiting positions at the Institute of Modern History at Academia Sinica (Taiwan), the National University of Singapore, and the Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW) at Australian National University.

This event is open to the Yale community; lunch will be provided. Please email to receive the reading materials for this colloquium.
