Over the past decade, China has invested tremendously in infrastructure development, resulting in dramatic social and cultural changes in both rural and urban regions. It has also promoted an infrastructural development model beyond its borders as part of an increasingly visible foreign policy agenda. China Made will explore both of these domestic and international dimension of China’s infrastructure development. The project is a partnership between Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences (HKIHSS) at the University of Hong Kong and the Center for Asian Studies (CAS) at the University of Colorado Boulder. Funded by the US-based Henry Luce Foundation, China Made is meant to shift the academic focus from broader geopolitical and international relations perspectives on the “China Model” of development to a finer grained analysis of the infrastructures themselves and the on-the-ground social and cultural dimensions of their construction. China Made will involve three academic conferences — two hosted by CAS in Colorado and one hosted by HKIHSS in Hong Kong — postdoctoral and graduate research positions, and the development of online scholarly resources for project participants and the broader academic community.
