The three visiting scholars from China Academy of Urban Planning and Design, who we have waited for the whole Fall term, finally arrived before the new year! They will join us in the China seminar in the coming year.

The first China Seminar this term will be led by PhD student Shen Qu, about the new documentary "Time of Xi," produced by Discovery Channel Asia. We will show the Episode 2 focusing on China's challenges in its environment, economy, and corruption. Shen will then lead the discussion on the issues covered in the video.

As China enlists the western media to spread its message, and hope they can "tell the Chinese stories well", People’s Daily celebrated the documentary as an “in-depth interpretation on China’s development path, ideas and inspirations for the world.”

The full TV series is available on YouTube, in case your want to watch all three episodes ahead of our seminar.

Bring your lunch and come join us next Thursday at Noon.
