Prof. Rosen discussed the presentations of Susan Brownell and Jay Wang. He noted that in advance of the Games, many in the Western press argued that the run up to the Games had amply demonstrated China’s shortcomings in terms of ethnic relations, press freedom, and migrant rights. The Games themselves, however, received much acclaim. He noted, for example, that Zhang Yimou, the producer of the Games’ opening and closing ceremonies was named a runner-up to Barack Obama in Time Magazine’s Person of the Year selection. Steven Spielberg, who had withdrawn as an artistic advisor to the Games, wrote the Time magazine article celebrating Zhang’s achievements.
