Book Talks – Coming This Spring

The spring semester is upon us, and the Library is planning to host 3 new Book Talks – get ready to mark your calendars!

February 16, 6-7pm, Library Gallery  – Dr MA Jianxiong (馬健雄), Assistant professor in HUMA will speak on his newly released book, The Lahu minority in Southwest China: a response to ethnic marginalization on the frontier (Routledge, 2013).  He will share the fruits of years of field research in Yunnan, where the borders of China, Burma, and Laos meet.  Illustrated with his photos, Dr Ma will discuss the problems the Lahu face as their traditional way of life changes, and in their interaction with the government of China and its ethnic minority policies.

March 19, 6-7pm, the Library’s LG4 Multifunction Room – Dr ZHU Lijing (朱力徑) of SAO will share his non-work-related intellectual interests in a talk called Reading about another ancient culture: A Chinese interest in the history of Jewish People.  Dr Zhu will talk about what sparked his interest in this topic, interesting books that he read, and share his thoughts.  We hope this talk will encourage students to cultivate an interest outside their studies that will enrich their lives in life-long learning.
