Overview Chen's (English, Minneapolis Community and Technical College) research for this study included traveling to China to find resource materials to better understand the impact of Shaw on Chinese theater. She examines why Shaw was introduced to China; how he was accepted, resisted, and appropriated; the significance of various Chinese modes of reception of Shaw; what cultural or political role Shaw played, or was made to play, in Chinese society; and what Shaw's experiences may reveal about contemporary relations between China and the West.
