USC Professor Emerita Charlotte Furth discusses her adventures in Beijing teaching young Chinese scholars about America.
The Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies (IUP), formerly known as the 'Stanford Center,' is now in its 10th year in Beijing on the campus of Tsinghua University. IUP was originally established in Taipei, Taiwan in 1963 and in 1997 relocated to its current site in Beijing.
IUP is the premier U.S.-sponsored Chinese language program intended for students who aspire to truly advanced competence, whether they be undergraduates, graduates, professionals, or established scholars.
Celebrating the grand reopening of USC Pacific Asia Museum after a year of the seismic retrofit project, the museum will present an exhibit drawn from the museum’s extraordinary collection of over 2,700 costumes and textiles from China, Korea, Japan, India, the Himalayas and Southeast Asia.
