November Program – “China – You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet:”
Roots, resurgence, and the accelerating growth of power.
Presentation by Professor Jim Brown, PhD, Samford University History Department. Thursday, November 13, 2014. We meet at 7:00 in Room 101 of Homewood Library (downstairs).
Dr Brown, a historian whose interests include Revolution, modern Russia and the East, was key to Samford University ’s exchange relationship with Anhui Normal University in China from 1988 to the mid-1990s, including getting stranded there with a class after June 4, 1989’s nation-wide disturbances associated with the Tiananmen Square massacres. This past June he returned to China for two weeks – including the 25th anniversary of that same June 4 – in the company of a former student who is now a China expert and an endowed chair of global business specializing in Chinese commercial law. Come and hear his fascinating comparison of China in the 1980s and now.
Come early for refreshments.
