Upcoming Tiger Event

Studies of China in Academia: China Scholars Reflect Back and Look Forward

Please  join us for an illuminating conversation with China scholars who  represent different fields of study. Three former students of Mrs. Lin  from the early 1970s, who became China academics based in North America  for most of their careers -- Timothy Brook, Deborah Davis, and Gail  Hershatter -- will share their insights and reflections on the genesis  of their interest in China, the initial focus of their primary research,  and how that focus evolved over their respective careers. They will  also consider how their teaching about China has developed as their  access to and engagement with China have shifted over the more than four  decades since they studied with Mrs. Lin. The talk will be moderated by  R. Bin Wong, another former student of Mrs. Lin. Following the  conversation among these scholars, the Q & A will commence by asking  each panelist to ponder how they have experienced the “native  Chinese/non-native Chinese” divide in research and teaching over the  years.



Registration for the talk is by email invitation only, and at this time participation is limited to members of our Tiger Community, including Helen Lin's students, colleagues, family, and invited guests. We welcome friends and colleagues of Tiger Community members to join us -- please have them send us their contact information, so we can send them an invitation. Email: HTL.Legacy@gmail.com
