A Year in Chengdu during China's Transition

presentation by Professor Jane Hunter and Joel Bernard

Historians Jane Hunter and Joel Bernard spent 2012-2013 living, teaching and studying at Sichuan University in Chengdu. From their base in the university's Foreign Experts' Building, they saw a lot of China during a pivotal year of political transition -- speaking at two Communist Party schools, observing an anti-Japanese demonstration, talking with ordinary Chinese, and with undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty in a dozen universities. They look forward to sharing their reflections -- and pictures -- of China during the first of Chinese President XI Jinping years.
