China Seminar begins its 2021-2022 season with reflections on the more than forty plus years since the program was established.
Eager to spread interest in and knowledge of all facets of China, in 1978 Professor Daniel Kwok launched the China Seminar, which combined serious discussion of a wide range of topics, followed always by The Maple Garden Restaurant’s superb food. Over the years, more than 250 speakers have delivered over 350 presentations on a wide range of topics — covering history, culture, politics, economics, art, theater, music, food, technology, intellectual property, law, and even medicine. The China Seminar has been the premier venue for exchanging ideas and has been at the forefront of serious discussions as China rose to become a major political and economic power.
Join us in reflecting on the legacy of the China Seminar as we forge new paths forward.
The Friends of the East-West Center and East-West Center are honored to continue this vital program online for our members, local community, and those worldwide who are interested in all topics concerning China.
