On Academic Career

Friday, 31 March 2023, 4:00pm (HKT) at CVA 1022 and on Zoom (and mixed mode)

Personal reflection, in the style of what C. Wright Mills calls “sociological imagination,” on my 43 years of academic career, with topics ranging from ties between personal interest and social issues, the global-historical nexus, development of intellectual taste and visions, cultivation of technical competence, to encounters with “giants” in the field, institution building, academic publishing, and supervision of doctoral students.
