Since the early 2000’s, the Chinese government has launched a series of “anti-desertification” campaigns in the arid northwest. Based on her field research in the pastoral area of western Inner Mongolia and agricultural area in central Gansu province, Hsing will talk about herders and farmers’ aspirations and strategies of living with conservation programs such as ecological relocation, grazing and farming reduction, and state subsidies in China’s rapidly changing rural economy.
The lecture will be followed by a light reception at the Provost’s House, 35 Hillhouse Ave.
