Memoirs of a Socialist Childhood in China: Socialism, Nationalism and Getting Ahead
Chen, Lei
Dialogic Pedagogy, v6 pSC40-SC48 2018
In this memoir, I accounted several episodes of my childhood of a middle class family in early 1990s in a Chinese urban city. Two major discourses permeated my account: the nationalism and socialism discourse and the upward social mobility discourse. While my family and I cherish the comfort and joy of everyday life enjoyed in the era of "socialism with Chinese characteristics," the suffering past is like a ghost, peeking out behind the curtain.
