Cornell Contemporary China Initiative Lecture Series is a new weekly lecture series sponsored by the East Asia Program. Launching in the spring 2015 semester, it will feature interdisciplinary talks by scholars and public intellectuals on contemporary issues in China. ASIAN 3308 is a one-credit undergraduate seminar course keyed to this new series. Students will attend several foundation-setting lectures by the instructor, then attend the weekly talks & write short assignments.
Since its inception in 1950, Cornell's East Asia Program (EAP) has stood as the focal point for research, teaching, and outreach on East Asia and the hub of a campus-wide network of specialists devoted to the study of contemporary and historical East Asia. EAP draws its membership of 39 core faculty and 57 affiliated and associated faculty from ten of Cornell's twelve schools and colleges, many of whom are prominent leaders in their scholarly fields.
The EAP Listserv, eapnews-L@cornell.edu, provides occasional announcements on activities and events of the East Asia Program as well as announcing the publication of our weekly newsletter. This page tells how to subscribe or take one's email address off automatically, without contacting EAP staff.
