Learning about China

Sipping from a Fire Hose

China is complicated. It is both a 5000-year-old civilization and a 72-year-old nation. It has a free-wheeling capitalist economy presided over by a Communist party. Traditions run deep and change happens at a dizzying pace. Where do you go to make sense of it all?

In this webinar, we explore ways to learn about China, from language and culture to history and contemporary society. The goal is not to point you to facts and figures, but to provide tools that will set you on a path of life-long learning.
