This paper draws on fieldwork supported by the Asia Scholarship Foundation's generous fellowship which allowed me to spend time and work in China. The support of friends and colleagues at the Inter-Asia Cultural Studies Society, Taiwan, and the Centre for Contemporary Studies, Shanghai University, has been invaluable in the process. The experiences and data from that fieldwork, however, found a framework during conversations within the Hivos Knowledge Programme. The provocations offered by Kees Biekart and Alan Fowler through the Civic Exploration workshops at the Institute of Social Studies, The Netherlands have helped give further shape and foundation to the work. Much of the material cited in this paper is from sources in Mandarin Chinese and would have remained inaccessible to me without the generous help of Xia ChenYue who located and helped translate the material.
