Christian Sorace

Christian Sorace is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Colorado College. His work is grounded in the intersection of comparative politics, political theory, and aesthetics. His recent book Shaken Authority: China’s Communist Party and the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake (Ithaca, N.Y., 2017) argues that the post-earthquake reconstruction was intended to be a showcase of the Communist Party’s benevolence, glory, state capacity, economic strength, and urban-rural development models.
