Beethoven in Beijing: Screening and Q&A with Filmmaker
The USC U.S.-China Institute is offering a free online workshop on the resurgence of classical music in China through the legacy of the Philadelphia Orchestra, from its first performances in the PRC in 1973 until its most recent tour in 2018.
The documentary is written, co-directed, and produced by Jennifer Lin. Living and working in China for four years as a correspondent for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Lin launched Beethoven in Beijing in 2015 after 31 years at the newspaper. She is an award winning reporter and author of two books.
Amy Cohen, the Director of Educator for History Making Productions, will discuss the correlating lesson plans and help educators bring the film into the classroom. Amy is a veteran of twenty years of middle, high school, and university teaching.
Funding for the workshop comes from the Freeman Foundation to the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA).
Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for a book talk with Professor Carolijn van Noort from the University of West Scotland. Her new book explores how China’s international political communication of the Belt and Road Initiative comprises narratives about infrastructure and the Silk Road.
