On Friday, February 7, 2014, Dr. David Arase, Professor of International Politics at the Johns Hopkins-Nanjing University Center for Chinese and American Studies at Nanjing University, lectured on Sino-Japanese Relations Viewed in a Global Context. What are the global implications of China as a major world power? Dr. Arase laid out the interrelationships among the regional players, as well as their individual motivations, agendas, and possible future moves. The Tokioka Room crowd was rapt with attention and kept the speaker at the podium answering questions well after his hour was up. Co-sponsored by the Center for Chinese Studies.
