Co-sponsored by Connecticut Mental Health Center and the School of Management

Professor Wrzesniewski’s research interests focus on how people make meaning of their work in difficult contexts (e.g., stigmatized occupations, virtual work, absence of work), and the experience of work as a job, career, or calling. Her current research involves studying how employees shape their interactions and relationships with others in the workplace to change both their work identity and the meaning of the job.

Tiananmen at Thirty; Memory as an Act of Resistance in the People's Republic of Amnesia
Luce Hall, Room 203 See map
34 Hillhouse Ave.

Thirty years after the brutal crackdown, the Tiananmen anniversary has become more – rather than less – politically sensitive as time has passed. Every year, the authorities use a range of tactics to suppress both the anniversary commemorations and journalistic reporting on them. In this talk, Louisa Lim examines the ways in which the legacy of Tiananmen has been excised from the collective and institutional memory in today’s China, as well as looking at the cost of memory and the role that foreign correspondents play in shaping memories of June Fourth outside China.
