Abstract

Student activism in twentieth-century China has been a widely researched subject since the 1989 Tiananmen protests. However, little is known about Beijing University student movement in the Hundred Flowers Campaign in 1957, especially in English language sources. Based on posters and speeches from the movement, as well as student memoirs, this study situates the movement in a historical framework, and specifically looks at repertoires, organizations, framings, political opportunities and constraints, and reflections of the movement.
