At the end of Reconstruction (1863-1877), southern blacks gradually lost their newly acquired rights and status as equal citizens. Being denied the right to vote, placed at the bottom of economic ladder, and subject to state-imposed Jim Crow laws in civic and public life, African Americans were turned into true second-class citizens of the nation. Confronting such suppressive and challenging environment, how did African Americans maintain their faith of regaining the rights? How did they continue to create and nurture antidiscrimination forces, ideologically and constitutionally? How did the changes of domestic and international situations help reshape the nation’s power structures and pave the way for the coming of the Civil Rights Movement? What political and legal resources did the activists of various backgrounds and at different levels use and what strategies did they adopt to advance their courses? How did the legislations of the Civil Rights Movement expand the constitutional principles of the first Reconstruction and how did they affect today’s enjoyment of civil rights by American citizens? The second talk will focus on the causes, processes, and outcomes of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s, with a brief discussion on how Asian Americans were related to the movement and how new challenges were posed after America’s “Rights Revolution.”

How the Chinese Communist Party Transformed China into a Giant Corporation
Leveraging its absolute power, low human rights advantage, and tolerance by other countries, the Chinese Communist Party has transformed China into a giant corporation. Living and working are not rights but privileges granted by the party. State-owned firms are business units or subsidiaries, private firms are joint ventures, and foreign firms are franchisees of the party. China, Inc., enjoys the agility of a firm and the vast resources of a state. Meanwhile, foreign firms competing with Chinese firms can find themselves matched against the mighty Chinese state. China, Inc. will interest many readers: it will compel business scholars to rethink state-firm relationships; assist multinational business practitioners in formulating effective strategies; aid policymakers in countering Chinas expansion; and inform the public of the massive corporate organization China has become and how democracies can effectively deal with it.

No. 2 of the Committee on Chinese Materials Workshop Series on Digital Projects of Chinese Studies
hosted by the University of Pittsburgh Library System (ULS) & Committee on Chinese Materials (CCM)
In July 2018, the East Asian Library (EAL) of the University of Pittsburgh Library System (ULS) initiated the Contemporary Chinese Village Gazetteer Data (CCVG Data) project to create an open-access online dataset of statistics extracted from Chinese village gazetteers (村志). This unique initiative has produced a dataset of significant value to the humanities and social sciences based on Chinese village gazetteers, which includes quantitative and qualitative data critical to supporting contemporary Chinese studies in fields such as politics, economics, sociology, environmental science, history, and public health.
This workshop will start with a review of village gazetteers published in past decades, the background of initiating the project, followed by a presentation and demonstration on data extraction procedures, data structure, data dictionary, downloading instructions, as well as the user interactive platform, etc. The current stage and the final goal of the project will be discussed as well.
Presented by the CCVG Data Project Team of the East Asian Library, University of Pittsburgh Library System. More information on the ULS at www.library.pitt.edu and CCM, Council of East Asian Libraries at https://www.eastasianlib.org/newsite/ccm/.
