The change in intellectual atmosphere that occurred after Mao's death created a desire to become more professional. This change probably is best illustrated by a comparison of the two posters above. To name but one element, the trope of struggle still very much present in the 1965 poster was traded in for the officially supported endeavour to professionalize in 1983. Study no longer was seen as something to be done between shifts, but as an activity all by itself.
