Talking Points focuses on events in California, but also notes major events and exhibitions held elsewhere in North America. Details for each event and our comprehensive event listing is available in the calendar section of our website.
As we did in our first year, USCI will offer a wide array of talks, conferences, screenings, and performances. Our first two events feature former Chinese Ambassador Wang Yunxiang (Sept. 10) speaking on issues in U.S.-China relations and USCI Board of Scholars member Richard Baum (Sept. 20) speaking on the political implications of China’s information revolution.
Recent additions to the USCI website include an article about China’s international recycling trade and a just released Congressional Research Service report on “food and agricultural imports from China.” The CRS report is just one of more than 350 documents and book reviews available in the resources section of our website. Our “on an average day in China” series includes brief notes on a wide array of issues including pollution and consumption. Secondary school educators may be interested our three fall seminars on teaching about East Asia and our Saturday workshop on “Images of East Asia.” Information about these programs is in the Asia in the K-12 Curriculum portion of our website. Please visit the website. We welcome your comments and questions.
