Ian Johnson on his new book Sparks: Webinar for K-12 Educators

Limited webinar openings exclusively for secondary school teachers offer a chance to explore Ian Johnson's new book, "Sparks," shedding light on determined Chinese writers, filmmakers, and artists who confront censorship while documenting their nation's history. This struggle is crucial, as the Chinese Communist Party tightly controls historical narratives to validate its rule. Amidst China's digital surveillance and repression, this book highlights how these dissenting voices persist, challenging the party's dominance over history. Teachers attending the webinar will receive a complimentary ebook of "Sparks," while others can join an in-person event on Oct. 18 hosted by USCI featuring Ian Johnson.
