Chinese Subjectivities and the Beijing Olympics

ISBN: 978-1-78348-987-9

作者:人文及創作系助理教授莊白莉博士
Author: Dr Gladys Chong, Assistant Professor of Humanities and Creative Writing

The book develops the Foucauldian concept of productive power through examining the ways in which the Chinese government tried to mobilise the population to embrace its Olympic project through deploying various sets of strategies and tactics. It argues that the multifaceted strategies, tactics, and discourses deployed by the Chinese authorities sustain an order of things and values in such a way that drive individuals to commit themselves actively to the goals of the party-state.

The book examines how these processes of subjectification are achieved by zooming in on five specific groups of the population: athletes, young Olympic volunteers, taxi drivers, Chinese citizens targeted by place-making projects, and the Hong Kong population. It probes critically into the role of individuals and how they take on the governmental ideas to become responsible autonomous subjects.
