    1. The first one, at Fudan’s Centre for Foreign Marxism, has happened, with some fascinating questions ad discussion. I have also been inquiring further about what students learn – at school and at university – about socialism with Chinese characteristics and what it means for them. But the most fascinating part is the way socialism has become part of Chinese culture as a deep level, especially bu not only through the young pioneers and youth organisation, so much so that young people think instinctively of the collective. A piece on that soon.
