  • The Problem of Discipline: ‘Shanghai’s Child Labor Problem,’ 1922-1925
  • Margaret Tillman (Purdue University)
  • This seminar will examine efforts to abolish child labor, not only to benefit the working class, but also to modernize the Chinese economy by enforcing industrial discipline. While scholars have noted some of the political reasons for the failures of child labor legislation, this seminar will attempt to conclude by placing these efforts in a longer-term historical perspective regarding social welfare movements.
