Passing the torch: Issues and opportunities facing the next generation of U.S.-China watchers


June 24, 2021 

Mr. Fei Guo, history Ph.D. student and Brumley Next Generation Graduate Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin’s Robert Strauss Center for International Security and Law, joins host Leslie Tisdale Reagan to discuss why the U.S.-China relationship matters to young people and issues facing rising generations– from technology and digital media to the new economy. 

As a historian, Mr. Guo provides background on his areas of scholarship, an overview of the current landscape of the U.S.-China relationship, including the differences between modern Chinese leaders and combatting a zero-sum relationship narrative for the future. Also in this episode, Mr. Guo shares his perspectives on bilateral technological competition, the challenges of disinformation and censorship in new age media, and the role historians can play in the process of policymaking.

In addition to being a 5th-year Ph.D. student, Mr. Guo is a Bush China Foundation fellow.
