Dec. 2 panel will examine Clinton trip to China
Four prominent UH Chinese Studies professors, each from a different discipline will discuss President Bill Clinton's recent trip to China in terms of changes in U.S.-China relations. These changes include growing economic ties, continued concern with human rights issues, and China's regional and international roles.
The panelists for "President Clinton's Trip to China: Causes and Prospects" are Roger Ames, professor of philosophy and director of the Center for Chinese Studies; Dru Gladney, an anthropologist associated with the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies as well as UH Department of Asian Studies; Eric Harwit, a political economist and associate professor of Asian studies; and Edgar Porter, associate dean, of the School of Hawaiian, Asian and Pacific Studies. Linda Chong, a graduate student in Chinese Studies, will also participate in the panel.
The free seminar, sponsored by the UH Center for Chinese Studies, takes
place at noon, Dec. 2, in the Tokioka Room (Moore Hall 319) at UH Manoa.
