China Week offers activities for all

 
2008-09-22


From Sept. 29 to Oct. 3, the campus will be abuzz with the sights and sounds of China. The first-ever China Week features a series of free lectures, films, discussions and cultural activities.

“All of us have a stake in how China's development unfolds,” says James Miller, associate professor of Chinese religions and director of Queen's China Week. “To an increasing extent, China's future is the world's future. Yet our views of China are often filtered through Western perspectives and conform to preconceived narratives. Our goal is to enable Canadians to see for themselves the faces of the new China.”

The week offers academic and social activities to educate people about the contemporary reality of China and to celebrate the contribution of Chinese students and scholars to the increasing diversity of the Queen's campus.
