Harvest Moon Festival
Come enjoy the Harvest Moon Festival.
The Harvest Moon Festival is a time to give thanks for the autumn harvest and to celebrate family. Hoiliday celebrations include the gathering of families, consumption of moon cakes, lighting of brightly coloren lanterns, and enjoyment of a full bright moon. Not exclusively a Chinese event, this festival is also celebrated by Vietnamese, Koreans and Filipinos.
How do we know what we know about China? The images most Americans hold of China were shaped by news coverage. Our multipart documentary series Assignment: China focuses on the journalists who have described the remarkable changes in China since the 1940s. Two of the most influential moments in this history were the Nixon visit in 1972 and the Tiananmen demonstrations of 1989.
The USC U.S.-China Institute presents a book talk by Matthew Kahn, an economic expert on climate change policy and USC professor. In "Blue Skies over Beijing," Kahn looks at life in China's cities from the personal perspectives of the rich, middle class, and poor, and how they cope with the stresses of pollution.
