Daniel W. Y. Kwok Daniel W. Y. Kwok

D. W. Y. Kwok, Professor of History at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, will speak on “Ding Ling (Ting Ling) - Thoughts in June and July.” The recent rehabilitation of Ding Ling as a member of the People’s Political Consultative Conference terminates 22 years of criticism and confinement for this writer. Her literary career and political encounters form important aspects of the history of literary dissent in modern China.
