Is an “Even Modernity” Possible in China?
This book has explored the condition of unevenness and its many cultural manifestations in postsocialist China. It has shown how this unevenness has not only shaped the sociocultural scenes of contemporary China, but also has become a major theme around the world in this period of late capitalism. As China makes tremendous efforts to merge further into the global capitalist system, this postscript asks whether an even modernity is possible in China and if so, what the cultural agenda will be like for the intellectuals. The capitalist historical narrative and the late-capitalist global reality seem to indicate that unevenness cannot be easily dissociated from capitalism. This postscript considers how an even modernity can be realized in a postsocialist condition.
