The Case for Cross Cultural Dialogues: Webinar Discussion on Literature and Art – SACU in Partnership with Blackfriars Oxford and Georgetown University, USA

October 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm

In this webinar U.K. historians Professors Michael Wood and Kerry Brown (both SACU members) will discuss their enthusiasm for Chinese literature, art, and performance with Kathryn Temple of Georgetown University and Tong Ping, a native of Chengdu—a city famed for its pandas but also as an intersection of differing Chinese cultures. The discussion will be co-chaired by Michael Scott, who has held fellowships at two Chinese universities and published a book in China on the stories of King Arthur (and SACU member), and Barnaby Powell, SACU Council member, a veteran of development banking in East Asia and co-author of three books on China.

 

Georgetown University U.S.A. and Blackfriars Hall Oxford, in co-operation with SACU, are running a monthly series of zooms on cross cultural studies of Chinese and Western culture as part of a Future of Humanities Project.

 

It is aimed at anyone interested in exploring and discussing the rich Chinese culture and history and looking at some of the Western comparisons.
