China Research Workshop: The Needham Question: A History of Chinese Technology
Using a newly created dataset on Chinese inventions in history, Huang and coauthors revisit the famous “Needham Question”—why China failed to launch its own Industrial Revolution. We examine several hypotheses proposed by scholars and find the most plausible hypothesis to be one about political and ideological contestability. This talk will draw from one chapter of Huang's forthcoming book, "The Rise of the East, Again?"
