Chinese Citizenship: Views From the Margins (Routledgecurzon by Vanessa L. Fong, Rachel Murphy

By Vanessa L. Fong, Rachel Murphy

Bringing a brand new size to the study of citizenship, Chinese Citizenship examines how participants on the margins of chinese language society care for country efforts to rework them into version voters within the overdue Nineteen Nineties and early 2000s. in line with large unique research, the authors argue that social and cultural citizenship has a better influence on people’s lives than criminal, civil and political citizenship. The seven case stories current intimate graphics of the conflicted identities of peasants, criminals, ethnic minorities, the city terrible, rural migrant childrens within the towns, mainland migrants in Hong Kong and chinese language early life learning in a foreign country, as they negotiate the perilous dilemmas provided by means of globalization and neoliberalism. Drawing on a various array of theories and techniques from anthropology, sociology, schooling, political technology, cultural stories and improvement reviews, the e-book provides clean views and highlights the customarily devastating effects that citizenship differences could have on chinese language lives.

Our cadres explain the facts, doing the sums for the farmers, telling them the input-output ratio of paddy rice and of cash crops such as tobacco. With this kind of persuasion, education and guidance we hope to win agreement with their hearts and words. (Taped interview, 19 October 2000) Other pedagogic activities in Rivercounty were more explicitly paternalistic. One example was the household linkage system whereby a cadre was assigned responsibility for helping a group of between five to ten households to ‘charge towards xiaokang’: providing them with technical help and guidance in agricultural production and doing thought work on them.

But I only stayed for a few weeks and couldn’t carry on staying there. Lu Wang: Why couldn’t you stay on? Hu Peng: The things are that when the teacher asks questions in the class, even if I put up my hand, the teacher would not call me. The teacher would play with them and was not interested in playing with us. Lu Wang: You only stayed for a few weeks. Would things be different if you had stayed longer? Hu Peng: It will be the same if you stay on. The teachers and the classmates do not speak to you.

The dispositional/moral pedagogies served as a band-aid for the symptoms arising from flaws in the Party-state governance structures, such as poor policies, corruption and bullying. 9 In particular, they deflected attention from the ways in which rural peoples’ position at the margins of Chinese society contributed to their ‘peasant traits’ of distrust, conservatism and ignorance. Although village elections were certainly a positive step in the direction of systemic change, it is unclear the extent to which a small, contained and directed pocket of political participation within a rigid vertical hierarchy would be able to ameliorate those systemically-induced aspects of poor governance that so outraged farmers.
