-

Location: 1030 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

About the Lecture

What is the role of social capital and network-building in China’s foreign policy in Africa?

Although these elements are important, they should not overshadow other essential types of investments, i.e. in human and social capital, that are central to the success of Chinese foreign policy in Africa. This study is an examination of China’s increasing investments in building

David Atwill lecture: "Muslims in a Buddhist Land: Tibet’s Muslims and the 1959 and 2008 Lhasa Uprisings"

-

Location: B101 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

About the Lecture

The Lhasa Uprisings of 1959 and 2008 stand out as the two most prominent challenges to People’s Republic of China’s rule in Tibet in the past sixty years. Both occurred at key moments of vulnerability for the PRC. Both resulted in open violence and the deaths of civilians, soldiers and monks. Rarely noted is the fact that in both revolts, Lhasa’s Grand Mosque emerged as a central target of Tibetan hostilities. Professor David Atwill (Penn State) will discuss Tibet’s Muslims and their often misinterpreted and misremembered role in Tibetan politics, culture and society through the lens of these two events.

Conference: Contesting the Idea of “Europe”

Location: 1050 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The first decades of the twenty-first century have witnessed the emergence of new existential challenges for Europe as a geopolitical, sociocultural, and economic entity.  These have included, for example, the encroachments of newly emboldened Russia and Turkey into economically and politically fragile regions of eastern Europe, the resurgence of xenophobic white nationalisms built on chauvinistic literary or historical narratives, the expansion of the European Union and its growth into one of the world’s leading economic forces, and perplexing diplomatic or security priorities arising from conflicts at home and abroad.  Such ongoing issues inspire questions about what “Europe” is; whether it be a geographical, historical, cultural, or political unit; and what the academic study of Europe can look like in the twenty-first century. …
